Running city guide in Gothenburg

Looking for great runs in Göteborg, Sweden? During a guided city running tour I bring you to some of the nicest parts of town, telling stories about the city’s past and present. I can take you to secret corners, tranquil parks and spectacular view points. If you’re a trail runner I can bring you to beautiful and challenging trails. Göteborg is quite a small city, so if you’re staying at a hotel in the centre of Göteborg we can start and finish the tour on your doorstep.

I’m also a practising running coach, so if you are interested in developing your running skills this is a great opportunity. My personal running philosophy starts with a joyful approach, focusing on feeling and form, rather than performance. I will show how you can use your body better when you run, which will make you a better runner. You will also learn how to avoid running injuries by running in a more careful way. If you’re interested, just contact me by leaving a comment below and I will tell you more.

    Dear Fredrik,

    This sounds interesting. I will be in Göteburg for a conference from June 7 to June 9. I would very much appreciate to make a tour with you on Friday, June 8 from around 6.30 am for approx 1,5 hours (around 15 km). I will stay in a hotel in the centre. Please let me know your thoughts.

    Kind regards

    I frequently travel to Goteborg for business and would love to explore some trails. Flyiing into Landvetter it looks like the perfect place to run! Could we hook up or organise something?
    Thanks, Henk, UK

    Hi Fredrik,

    Your offer sounds really attractive 🙂

    I will be in Göteburg for a meeting on next May 29 (arriving on May 28 afternoon and leaving on May 30 afternoon) and I am wondering if it would be possible for you to arrange to take a run together (let’s say 1,5 hours, rythm around 5’/km) either on the arrival day or the departure one.

    In case this didn’t fit on your plans, would you be so kind to recommend me some route? I have read a lot of positive references of Skatas so if you could please confirm these comments I could try to book a hotel close to this location in order to try some of the routes there you may suggest me…

    I am really looking forward to knowing of your thoughts and thank you in advance for your time!
