Before the start

Thank you for chosing the happiest race of the year. Specialvarvet has a huge place in our hearts and is the highlight of the year for many children, adolescents and adults with functional variations. Together we can create memories for life. Come and cheer on these heroes.

Please note that the Specialvarvet has in previous years been arranged on Fridays, now the race has been moved to Thursday, this year - May 16.

Specialvarvet starts close to Björngårdsvillan in Slottsskogen. You can choose between two courses. The red course is 3.3KM long and the blue course is 2.1KM

Both courses take in the beautiful Slottsskogen and finish through the Göteborgsvarvet finish inside Slottsskogsvallen. After the finish line, a well-deserved medal and other surprises await.
