"Grabbhalvan" Top 5 Page for this destination Norrköping Sports & Outdoors Tip by Psife

Norrköping Sports & Outdoors: 10 reviews and 5 photos


Grabbhalvan, a 5 kilometer running competition (or trotting in most cases) for "real" men through the streets of Norrköping. It's an annual competition in may and has become an annual festival with many companies participating.

Everyone who finishes receives a survival kit with an inscribed beer glass and other essentials. My favourites are the ones running the entire race with a beer can in their hand =)

A special price is the "case-price", there's an empty case of beer after 3 kilometers, the person who brings it over the finish line get a special price.

Equipment: A real "grabbhalva" should wear a net shirt and 3 days stubble and preferable a beer belly.

Directions: Start and finish in the People's Park
