In 2012, two local guys had the thought of creating a marathon course in Helsingborg that would showcase the city's unique underlay and beautiful surroundings. It didn't take long for them to act on their idea, and soon the journey towards Sweden's second biggest marathon began. On its premiere edition in 2014, around 3300 runners started the race at Sundstorget outside Dunkers Kulturhus in the centre of Helsingborg. The course features a flat 7 kilometer road to Råå Småbåtshamn, followed by the Ättekulla nature preserve. Continuing on, runners pass through Ramlösa Brunnspark, Jordbodalen, Fredriksdal museum and garden, Helsingborg Arena, Olympia, Kärnan, Pålsjö Skog, and Sofiero. The course concludes with a long downhill called Tinkarpsbacken, before finishing by the ocean at Gröningen. The last 3300 meters are marked every 100 meters with flags banners for the last 200 meters.In 2017, the Half Marathon was added to the event, starting from the same location as the marathon and relay. The first two kilometers are unique to the Half Marathon, with runners passing through Gustav Adolfs Torg, Kärnan, Pålsjö Skog, and Sofiero. The course has an altitude difference of around 180 meters with a hill leading up to Kärnan after three kilometers and a long descent towards the ocean after 18 kilometers. Finishers celebrate their achievement by the Öresund, with activities for family, friends, and supporters in the event area.
