Venue & Services
The marathon will be held at Murikanranta - a unique conference center in the peaceful seclusion of nature, surrounded by Pirkanmaa’s beautiful Lakeland - about 40 minutes from downtown Tampere. We will have at our disposal all of the resort complex including a spacious dance hall, a comfortable hotel and restaurant, a luxurious spa and multiple saunas.
All of the dancing will take place in the 435-square meter massive hall with a 7 meter ceiling height. The floor is a gym floor meaning it is sprung – which helps reduce pain in the feet and allows to dance all day and night long. Doors to the outside should assure plenty of fresh air as well as direct access outdoors from the dance hall – and the room height will help keep the air fresh and cool.
The dance hall building is also home to the Spa, a meeting room and Bar, so you will be able to enjoy dancing and relaxing with friends around.
There are, of course, men’s and women’s dressing rooms right next to the dance hall.
The recently renovated hotel is located in the main building and can accommodate a total of 208 people. There are comfortable beds, a bathroom with shower, hairdryer, towels and a big mirror in each room. Hotel guests will have access to a washing machine, iron, and free WLAN internet on the grounds of the center.
When filling in the registration form you will be asked which kind of room you would prefer to stay in. Most rooms are for 2 people, some are reserved for singles (max 13 single rooms for those truly in need - sleep apnea, snoring, etc. Health/Privacy concerns), and some superior rooms will have 3 beds in them. See here for costs and more details.
Upon confirmed registration and payment your room will be guaranteed. You don’t need to and even can not reserve rooms from the venue directly. If your desired room type is no longer available we will inform you of the available options.
During registration you will also be asked about your desired roommate/s (in case you are requesting a Twin/Double/Triple room). If you have not requested a roommate, one/two will be assigned to you by the organizers (only same sex roommates).

Drinking water, regular coffee and tea that are served by the Dancing hall during dancing hours are included in all of the packages.
There will be a bar near the dance hall, during dancing hours until 2am, where there is alcohol, specialty drinks, and snacks for sale.
Spa & Sauna
There is no way to think about Finland without sauna! The atmospheric sauna is an excellent way to pamper yourself after the dancing day or the night – or even during!
