Useful info


The closest airport to the marathon venue is the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. Both Pre- and After-party will be organized at the El Atico dance studio in Helsinki.

While Tampere or Turku Airports often offer inexpensive flights with low-cost airlines, please note that you would then need to take a train or bus to Helsinki or Lahti. There is a weekday bus that departs from Lahti Bus Station to Vierumäki centrum, a 20-minute walk away from the Country Club.
