Stockholm Half Marathon
SWEDEN, SEPTEMBER 9 This ticks a couple of the most important boxes for those new to destination racing: it’s very PBfriendly ( just 27 metres of elevation in the whole thing and only 14,000 or so runners on a wide course) and there’s plenty to look at on the way round, including the Royal Palace, City hall, the Swedish parliament and the Royal Opera House.
DIRECT FLIGHTS from £107 return from Manchester
WHILE YOU’RE THERE... Depending on how you’re feeling you can visit Abba: the Museum! (exclamation mark added) or the Nobel Museum. stockholmhalvmarathon.se
