Imagine August 1854 when the Bomarsund period came to an abrupt end. After Russian forces for over two decades had worked to build Bomarsund fortifications everything was destroyed in a few days at a English- French attack.
Let the race take you to areas including those that Lieutenant Zvendjeff at Notvikstornet and towercommandant Tesche at Brännklintstornet tried to defend with their troops. Run along the same paths that medical staff used to take the injured to hospital, as the messengers took to convey messages to the fortress commandant Bodisco and used at funerals to bring their men to his final resting place.
The same day in the forenoon Bomarsund Openwater will take place in the surroundings. An open water event that offers three different distances – 3000 meters, 1500 meters and 300 meters with both competition- and open classes.

*) NOTE! Due to replacement of the Bomarsund Bridge, the routes/ distances may need to be adjusted in 2021-2022. There might be no running to the Prästö-side and alternative routes will then be offered on the Notvik-side.
The distances are estimated to be adjusted by a maximum of 15%.
