Travel with the Runners´train to Göteborgsvarvet

From Stockholm to Gothenburg

Runners´train 2023 was a success with a fully booked train. We will provide more information about the Runners´train 2024 at a later time.

If you live in Stockholm, Katrineholm or Skövde you can travel both sustainably and comfortably with the festive runners´ train to Gothenburg on May 13th and back home after the race.

The atmosphere on board is lovely and exciting with only runners and supporting friends/family on the train. You will receive your number bib on board. As a thank you for traveling sustainably, those who travel with the Runners´ train receive starting group 8 (or earlier with their own seeding-forming result). After Gothenburg´s 21 km, we offer shower facilities in connection with the finish area before the train travels back towards Katrineholm/Stockholm.

As a runner, you can buy several tickets for family/friends who want to come along and cheer. Please note that those of you who are going to run Göteborgsvarvet need to book the Runners´train via your registration/My Pages so that we can print your number bib and deliver it on the train.
