The race


Stockholm City Race and Trail-O 16-18 July 2021

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.
    Distances range from 3 km to 8 km depending on category.

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.
