If you live or visit the Helsinki area, feel free to join free training runs organized by Finnish Athletics and Juoksuliike. There are two trainings per month throughout the year. Trainings are published in Facebook in the Helsinki City Run page's events. Please ask for translation from maraton@sul.fi if the English version is not available.
 

Helsinki City Run and LiiKe Sports & Development collect used sneakers and running shoes during HCR 2016. The shoes are donated to Tanzanian girl schools in Mtwara-Mikindan region.

The girls in the chosen schools have had many obstacles to continue their studies. Early marriages and the poverty of the families have led to many school dropouts. LiiKe supports eight middle schools by organizing seminars relating to health education, by arranging village meetings and by supporting the school sport done by girls.

Helsinki City Run has a new route in 2016! The course has been planned based on the wishes of the runners. The new route is more urban than in previous years but has kept its charm with the beautiful seaside, park and forest views. Get familiar with the new beautiful course.
