In exactly one year’s time, the Bridge Run from Denmark to Sweden will mark an important link between the two countries

21.1 kilometres from Denmark to Sweden in running shoes below and high above sea level in summer weather. The Bridge Race 2025 will first and foremost be a rare experience for the 40,000 runners who managed to secure a spot.

But the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of The Øresund Bridge also marks something bigger. With many Swedish and Danish participants running side by side, it also illustrates the values of a well-integrated Øresund region for its 4.2 million citizens.

“The Bridge Run sets the stage for 40,000 lifelong memories of a unique and life-affirming journey from Denmark to Sweden through the tunnel and across our beautiful bridge. But it is also a celebration of all the potential that lies in connecting the Øresund region for both people and businesses,” says Linus Eriksson, CEO of Øresundsbron.

The party can last for several days
The organisers from Malmö Allmänna Idrottsförening (MAI) and Sparta Atletik & Løb hope that the celebration can last for several days so that not all 40,000 participants have to cross The Øresund Bridge by bus or train before and after the race on 15 June 2025.

“There are especially many participants travelling from Sweden to the start in Denmark. So to make the participation as good as possible for everyone, it’s a good idea to arrive in Denmark before race day so you can easily get to the start in Tårnby,” says Mats Svensson, spokesman for organiser MAI.

Co-organiser Sparta Atletik & Løb hopes that many participants will plan well in advance and take advantage of the summer opportunities by staying in Copenhagen or Malmö.

“Copenhagen, Tårnby and Malmö have so much to offer. We hope that many runners will bring family or friends and create shared memories and a better overall experience by staying overnight before the start or after the finish in Sweden,” says Dorte Vibjerg, CEO of Sparta Atletik & Løb.

The Bridge Run 2025 takes it’s beginning from Øresundsparken in Tårnby, Denmark. From here, the route descends through a 4 km illuminated tunnel to the artificial island of Peberholm before ascending to a height of 57 metres over sea level on The Øresund Bridge with a spectacular view towards the finish in the coastal Sibbarbsparken in Limhamn outside Malmö in Sweden.

The Bridge Race sold out within hours of going on sale on 1 February 2024.
