The race starts at Ladugårdsgärdet and the landmark Kaknästornet. The tower was built 1967 and is one of Stockholms highest buildings. Almost at the top of the tower is a restaurant and a café with a miles wide view over Stockholm. But this has to wait until after the finish. Soon after the start  you enter a beautiful deciduous forest with narrow up-kept trails. When you have passed Hundudden you cross the bridge that runs over Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen. The trail follows the shore of Isbladskärret before it submerges into the lush deciduous forest which now mainly consists of majestic oak trees. At the well known and well-kept garden of Rosendal the trail merges  into a park and walkway. You run passed the parameter of Skansen and Villa Gothem before you pass the tram and run towards Galärparken, next to the Vasamuseeum, where the royal ship from the 17th century is preserved for future generations. At the finish you are treated to an extrodonarviwe of the city center of Stockholm, framed by the beautiful Strömmen.
