Taxi Göteborg – wherever you want, whenever you want

You should not think of anything else than running. Plan ahead and book a taxi that can take you to the starting area, or even better take a taxi back home when the race is over – You are worth it! And if you run out of energy during the race our drivers are standing along the track and will drive you, free of charge, to the finish area – no one is left behind.

We are here for you, every day, around the clock, throughout your stay and will take you wherever you want.


Experience Swedish west coast cuisine at Gothenburg’s best restaurants. First-class seafood and classic meatballs are waiting for you!


Find your event

Gothenburg always offers daily events, such as concerts, exhibitions, and children activities. Take a look and find an event that suits you!


See the city

Believe it or not – there’s more to Gothenburg than just the race! Don’t miss sightseeing and shopping in Sweden’s second largest city.
