This Saturday, we and 27 000 other runners ran through the new Stockholm City Line. A unique race beneath the city centre and this was the only chance to run in the tunnel.
The mood was on top from the start, after we´ve got warmed up by Susanne Lanefelt and 2 hip hop boys.
Just before start we learned that the hill "aborrbacken" has a 12 % upgrade and in the tunnel the hills have a grade between 12-14%. Didn´t know there were hills in a tunnel!

After 2 km around Karolinska the 6 km tunnel waited for us. Running trough the tunnel you forgot all about hills, tiredness and to many layers of clothes. There were light shows, a choir singing, music on big screens, running facts with Calle Moraeus, cheering volunteers, signs so you knew when you were running under Central stationen......

The end of the tunnel.

This was a unique race in many ways. We´ve never seen so many smiling people running, even running the last km uphill, they had a smile! This is what all training and work out should be about; having fun!

Two big smiles after finished! Running with a friend could be so much funnier.

They welcomed us back in 2025, so probably there will be another race then, somewhere! Run it! We will guarantee you a running memory for life!
