  • Göteborgsvarvet is arranged for the benefit of the athletics activities

    Göteborgsvarvet is organized by Gothenburg Athletic Association which supports track and field activities in the region. More than 50 track and field clubs and about 4,000 volunteers are involved in the event. The surplus goes directly back to the sports movement to be invested in the associations' youth activities and the operation of the Friidrottens Hus training facility.
