Metrunner Stockholm City Race
City Race is an event format that takes place many days in an urban environment. Metrunner Stockholm City Race takes place on three days over a July weekend, with extra-long daylight that doesn’t give way to darkness until around 10pm.
The three days will be arranged thus:
- Thursday (21 July 2022): Sprint orienteering @ Vaxholm
Winning time 12-15 minutes for all categories.
Distances range from 2 km to 4 km depending on category.
- Friday (22 July 2022): Urban long distance @ Solna
Winning time up to 70-100 minutes in elite classes.
Distances range from 4 km to 20 km depending on category.
- Saturday (23 July 2021): Urban middle distance @ Södermalm
Winning time up to 30-35 minutes in elite classes.

Urban orienteering is based on speed and route choice. A leg between two checkpoints can have up to three or four major route choices, which is often decisive in getting an edge over your competitors.
