About the competition

Åland Marathon & ½ Marathon is a city race on a route slightly shorter than 5 kilometers that offers both full- and half-marathon and also 10km and 5km races.
Mariebad will serve as competition center and offers the participants i.e. shower- and saunafacilities.

In close proximity to the ferry harbor (2,5km to the competition center) and the airport (5km to the competition center) it is easy to get to this year’s competition. Even from the ferry terminals in the Berghamn, Eckerö (about 35km) and from Långnäs, Lumparland (30km) will be easy to Mariehamn with shipping companies own shuttles that operate in conjunction with the boats’ arrivals and departures.

Let your participation in the Åland Marathon & ½ Marathon be a nice break in your everyday life, a little trip to an exciting little island.
You can, if you like, come just to participate int the race but you can also easily combine the race with a few days of other wonderful experiences in Åland. Read more about what to do for example at Visit Ålands website.
