Norwegian Rømskog IL and Swedish Boviken SK have the pleasure of inviting to marathon in scenic surroundings in the border between Norway and Sweden. The race consists of a controlled marathon, half marathon, 10km and children race. The event is a a follow-up of the race in 2005 that was part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the union resolution between Norway and Sweden.
The start and finish are on the idyllic Kurøen. The Kurøn is an idyllic farm on Rømsjøen, which today is a combined village and cultural center. The farm was given as a gift to Rømskog municipality in 1986. The farm's history dates back to 1599.
