Start Marathon and Halfmarathon
There are three different distances to participate in the Paavo Nurmi Marathon: 10 km, halfmarathon and marathon.
Start and Finish
The Start and Finish-line for all distances is locatedt beside the City Theatre, approx. 150 m from the Competition Office.
The route in marathon and half marathon passes through the city centre and the Ruissalo island. The length of one lap is halfmarathon, 20097,5 m, so full marathon consists of two laps.
The 10km course follows mainly the marathon course and has the turning point near the Turku harbour, so the course doesn't visit the Ruissalo island.
In marathon and halfmarathon:
Men: overall competition and age categories M 40, M 45…M 70+.
Women: overall competition and age categories N 35, N 40, N 45… N 60+. Please note that we apply the international definition of the categories, where “the category of the participant will be defined by his or her age on the 31st of December in the year of the running event.” The time limit is six hours.
In 10km there are only overall fitness categories for men / women.
The three best participants on the marathon and ½marathon in each division and age group will be rewarded with Paavo Nurmi Marathon medals. The award ceremonies for the best five runners on the general division on the marathon and ½ marathon will take place by the finish line as soon as the best five have finished their races. The best three on the age group divisions can receive their awards from a separate award stand as soon as the results are completed.
