Nuuksio Classic is a trail running marathon in Nuuksio national park near Helsinki, Finland on Saturday September 1, 2012. It takes its participants to the finest trails and greatest landscapes of Southern Finland. There is only one distance, approximately 42,5km = full marathon. Course map, altitude profile and a GPS track of the route will be published here as soon as they are available.
The participation number is limited to 300 due to the delicate nature and organization’s capacity. Registration to the event takes place by filling a registration form that you can find here (link coming on May 14, 6pm Finnish time). To register, you will have to pay the entrance fee at the same time. For that you need a debit or credit card.
There is also a small amount of starting slots reserved for foreign participants that can be requested from the race organization after June 1 via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event center is Hotel Siikaranta, a nice little hotel next to the national park. We warmly recommend booking accomodation there before and after the race. There is a special room rate for race participants. If the hotel is full, please contact the race organization for other recommendations in the area. Also, don’t miss the official banquet on saturday evening after the race, with photos and videos of the event.
The distance to the event from Helsinki international airport is 37km, slightly over 30min by car and about 1,5h by bus. A very practical trip planner to public transport can be found here. To some extent, organizers can also help with transport.
The two main targets of the event are to promote trail running in Finland and to offer an unforgettable, enjoyable, but challenging nature sports experience to the participants. If this is something you want to experience, register right away! If you wait, it may be too late; we expect the event to raise high interest among potential participants.
