The Tunnel Race, Stockholm, 17 October 2004

One week before the South link tunnels were opened for traffic, there was a race for runners and inline skaters in the tunnels. Totally ca 15.000 runners and ca 3.200 inlineskaters participated.

There were two distances for the inline skaters and all of the photos shown here are from the long distance (4 laps, ca 42 km) where ca 1.100 skaters participated.

Almost all of the photos are taken by photographer Johan Ekstam and they are published here by courtesy of Jan Herrström. Thanks also to Steve Gustavsson at IS Göta for his kind contribution.

90 % of the course was in the tunnel but since neither spectators nor photographers were allowed to enter the tunnel there are not many photos from there.
