Really good race

I ran this in 2016 as part of a final challenge and my first attempt at running 2 in a week.  Stockholm expo is not really anything there apart from ASIC's as they sponsor it.

The race itself is run on a Saturday and starts at 2 in the afternoon, the course follows almost 2 laps of the city centre, and although am not a fan of laps I really enjoyed this race, lots of fuel stations every 3 km, including amongst other pickled gherkins at mile 14.  As it is mostly around Stockholm it is pretty well supported and as i wasn't bothered about time so just enjoyed it ....although its a bit mre undulating than I would have thought, possibly why I should check the map route a bit closer when signing up for races.  Would definitely recommend this one

Stunning but some work to do

I think as the marathon is relatively new they are not set up for it and geared for the half and 10k.  There are no pens at the start and both the full anf half runners start together.   Great for the first 12 miles all along the coast then those running the marathon split off, and are taken thought parks and little paths and a bit of suburbia, the low numbers mean you are running by youreslf a fair bit and there is not much support.  Once it comes back into Reykyvik at mile 19/20 and back along the coast then it is much better.   Alos no ogodie bag and all you get is your t shirt and medal and it is expensive.  Wortht he experiece but possibly wouldn't rush back
