Aalto 10K and Aalto 5K sports event 17.9.2017 – come along!

The traditional Aalto 10K and Aalto 5K takes place on Sunday 17 September 2017 at 12.00.

You can run, jog, walk, or Nordic walk the distance of your choice. Last year (2016) over 1600 Aalto members (staff, students and alumni) registered to join this free event and this year we are expecting at least the same amount of Aalto participants.

The Aalto 10K /5K  is part of the Espoo Rantamarathon- weekend. The marathon and half-marathon takes place on Saturday 16 September 2017 and Aalto members are very welcome to take part in those as well with special price.

The start line for both events (Aalto 10K/5K and marathons) is at Espoo Otaranta, Otaniemi Campus (Otahalli area).

Before the race, there will be a joint warm up session for all participants, and a prize will be awarded to the Aalto Athlete of the Year (AYY prize).

All participants will receive a technical "Rantamaraton 2017" running shirt with university's logo on it.

It is good to know that Aalto 10K (10 km) and the marathons has official timing. 5K (5km) is without official timing.
