Mini­varvet Marathon

Of course, our mini sprinters should also get the chance to run double laps during Marathon Weekend! Not only will they cover twice the distance, but they will also experience double the joy and twice the fun!

420 meters of pure joy as the youngest, 0-6 year olds, run Minivarvet Marathon in Slottsskogen. Welcome to a day of fun!

A big thank you this year!


The course:420 meters in Slottsskogen

During Marathon Weekend, the Minivarvet Marathon course is doubled! Now, children will get to run a 420 meter track on grass, marked on both sides for safety. For those children who prefer to run only 210 meters, it's perfectly fine to finish after one lap.

Minivarvet Marathon is located near the starting points of both the Rosa Varvet and Göteborgsvarvet Marathon, making it a weekend for the whole family!

Of course, parents are allowed to run alongside their mini sprinters if they can keep up with their pace. You can find the Minivarvet Marathon event area just below Björngårdsvillan in Slottsskogen.

Minivarvet:The race for the youngest

Minivarvet is Sweden's largest children's race and since its inception, thousands and thousands again of small children have run Minivarvet. Many kids are satisfied with one lap, while others run the course several times. Minivarvet is charged with running, joy, play and adventure. With this race, we want to encourage an active life from when the children are young.

Minivarvet is for children up to the age of 6 - born in 2017 and later. Register online today or in the event area at the race day! Together, we create memories for life.

Minivarvet was 2023 expanded with Minivarvet Trail. An early adventure for the youngest, where they get to take on a course with obstacles in the family area. Both races are included in the registration, and our mini-sprinters can run as many laps as their legs can carry them.
