Half marathon in Stockholm Saturday
Visitors to Stockholm should be aware that there may be some disturbance in traffic and public transportation Saturday. The police are advising motorists to avoid driving in the city if they can, and some buses are being rerouted.
The main cause will be this year’s Stockholm Half Marathon, which kicks off at 3:30 PM, and primarily affecting the islands of Kungsholmen, Gamla Stan (the Old Town), and Södermalm, but also parts of Norrmalm and Vasastan.
Around 17,000 runners are expected to take part.
Some inner city bus routes will be rerouted because of the race.
