Description

Farsund Marathon started in 2012 when a small group of locals got together to discuss new activities that could be held in the municipality to draw more people - tourists and visitors , as well as engage the locals.

They felt that a marathon could utilize the entire municipality and view the spectacular scenery that can be found in Farsund. After hours of discussions and planning, the Farsund Marathon was agreed to take place on the 1st of June 2013.

There were a total of 581 participants which were divided into 47 for the entire marathon , 139 for the half marathon , 179 for 10 km and 216 in the children’s race. The winner of Farsund’s first marathon was Erik Bergesen from London that ran on 02.55.17.

There are four running tracks :

The full marathon at 42 km
The half marathon of 21 km
Mini marathon of 10 km
Kids marathon

It has been easy for the organisers to plan the running tracks because of the vast and idealistic landscape that Lista and Farsund have to offer.

The marathon starts and ends at the Farsund city centre of which the full marathon extends to the Lista lighthouse and back.

There has already been a few hundred that have registered for the 2014 race, so it will be an even bigger event this year.

There are plenty of accommodation opportunities in the area including the Farsund Fjordhotell overlooking the fjord.

The main sponsors for the event are Mizuno, Sport 1 Farsund and Sparbanken Sør .
