Join us and meet your fellow runners for a short 20-30 minute run along the beautiful Töölö Bay. We start from the Paavo Nurmi statue right next to the Competition Office and Expo at Töölö Sports Hall. 

Shake Out Run coaches come from Juoksuliike, the official partner of Finnish Athletics Federation's running events.

Helsinki Street Run is a great event which follows the Helsinki City Marathon route and offers the same services, athmosphere and vibes as the Finland's largest Marathon. It is organized for the third time this year. 

First two years the course has been following the Marathon route and the distance has varied a bit depending on the changes on the HCM route. Last year the distance was closer to 18 than 17 km. After hearing the hopes and wishes of the runners the organizers have changed the Helsinki Street Run route to exactly 17 km.

As the year 2016 is coming to an end, it’s a great time to make a new year’s resolution for 2017.

Street Run and Helsinki City Marathon runners are given a new waterproof gear bag for the personal items. The equipment bag is familiar from other big running events and has also been in use at the Helsinki City Run (the half marathon) which takes place in May. It is easy to use, waterproof and a safe way to store your gear during the run.

Runners leave their equipment to the storage in the gear bag. The bag is handed out when the runners pick up the runners' package and race bib number. The gear check area is located behind the Sonera Stadium at Bollis 6 field.
