– Do you want a chance to test your limits? Have you never ran more than 15 Km (9 miles) before? Do you want to reach the marathon distance? Do you yearn to run further than marathon and become an ultra runner?

Read more and then show up at start. Run until you are satisfied. We will follow bus- and subway lines, and we have many stops on the way.

Short about the workout

This workout was organized the first time in 2007, we have ran this workout eight times, this years event is the 9th. See more at Team Fakta about the history behind this event.

There have been some friendly nagging  that there is no way to pay back. I have during the years got requests for a money bucket, I have found gifts in the car. A group runners have give us goats that are delivered to those that need them. This year Patrik Hernwall have started a charity collection that collect money to Stadsmissionen.

Pit stop

It is hard to carry everything you want and need during a long workout.
We have the following pit stops along the route where you can fill up on your stocks, find a toilet, change clothes.

  • Wait means that you can wait here for the next group if you want to.
  • As always, Ulla and Annica organize pit stop 1 and 2. They will close as soon as the 7.15-group have left.
  • All groups should at least visit the places where runners can wait for the next group.

Map and course

The course is from 2012 and corrected to get a meeting point in Mörby centrum, and corrected because OKQ8 have moved from Mörby centrum.
Down here on the map you can get the track to download into your GPS. Visit their home page.

It is always fun to come out on a longer jogg. I look forward to this.
