Eerikkilä Trail Run

Eerikkilä trail run now for the fourth time

On the Eerikkilä Trail Run, you can get to know the Häme Lake Uplands holistically. The routes run through the terrain of the Ruostejärvi recreation area and Liesjärvi National Park, following the paths of the legendary Häme Ilvesreitti.

Our event has grown year by year, but we do not want to grow into a mass event this year either. The number of runners in the first year in 2018 was 113 participants, in 2019 192 runners registered but the bad weather cut the crowd off the starting line. 2020 we had 195 runners. This year, our goal is to get 300 runners on the journey to the magnificent scenery of Eerikkilä.


Event center

The event center is Eerikkilä Sport & Outdoor Resort with its diverse services. The event center also serves as a starting and finishing area of the race.

There are different levels of accommodation and restaurant services also for those travelling from longer distance. The area has a wide range of sports and nature activities, even for a weekend with the whole family or group of friends. As a competition offer we have accommodation at a reduced price with the code ETRAILRUN. The discount is valid for accommodations from 7 to 9 October 2022.

Route description and map

Short, medium and Long trail route descriptions and route map

There are several lean to´s places on the route, where even supporters can enjoy the rich nature of the area. Service and water points are available on medium and long routes. On the way, several dry toilets are bypassed, which you can visit if necessary. The route passes at some points close to private accommodation and holiday accommodation, which the passage has been agreed with the owners only for this race. Please respect their privacy as you navigate the route during the race or in the future. Remember to also respect other nature walkers, especially in the Liesjärvi area.

There are rocks, rhizomes and also duckboards along the way that can be very slippery so we recommend equipping cross-country/trail running shoes.
