001—Swedish mountain marathon week

Fjällmaraton Week, Sweden

Fjällmaraton has grown from a single race to a week-long festival of running and mountain adventures in central Sweden. With a race programme covering distances from 250m to 100km that take in the vast forests and mountains of Jämtland County, there is a race option to suit your abilities. So whether you are aiming for a place on the podium, or this is your first mountain race, you can proudly represent Team Arduua while sharing great company and a warm Swedish welcome.
