Stockholm Marathon, known as the ASICS Stockholm Marathon for sponsorship reasons, is an annual race arranged in Stockholm, Sweden since 1979. It serves as the Swedish marathon championship race. The marathon normally takes place at the beginning of June or the end of May. The ASICS Stockholm Marathon comprises two scenic laps around the medieval city situated on fourteen islands, on the banks of the archipelago of 24,000 islands.

At the finish, in the classical 1912 Olympic Stadium, enthusiastic fans greet the runners. The Marathon Expo, the Pasta Party and the Post Race Celebration are traditional parts of the event, bringing all runners together in a joyful atmosphere. With almost 7,500 international runners from more than 80 countries the ASICS Stockholm Marathon is also a multicultural festival.
