The race is basically a two lap course. It passes through central parts of Stockholm with views of the surrounding woods, the royal park 'Djurgarden' and the city centre streets. The course is regarded as one of the world's most scenic marathon routes. Runners pass buildings such as the Royal Palace, the Royal Opera, the City Hall and the Houses of Parliament with much of the race running along pleasant waterfronts. When crossing the 'Vasterbron' bridge, the runners are presented with an amazing view of the city, with buildings ranging in age from the medieval times to the present day, reaching the finish line in the 1912 Olympic Stadium.
