Stockholm Marathon

We went to watch the Stockholm Marathon 2009 today and it was a great party really, so many people everywhere! And so many people running today, it was great to see, a wonderful bunch of people from everywhere running together or spectating.

We had a picnic at Långholmen close to the dreaded bridge Västerbron which is a rather tough part of the track. The runners pass this point twice and I took some pictures from the crowd running.

We were also looking for a couple of people we knew who would be running but since it was really crowded at times I think we missed them all in the crowd. Sorry, we still cheered for you!

The dreaded bridge. It's quite long and the first part is all uphill and terrible. The next part is downhill and also terrible :) Runners pass this at km 12 and km 33.
People running happily about.
The more crowded bunch are coming. Look at all the spectators on the left hand side!
Some was running quite cool, others looked like they'd drop dead. This guy here was cool.
More runners...
