Every year on May 1st, the road race Esefjorden is arranged around Balestrand. The Esefjord is surrounded by beautiful but wild mountains. Tjugatoten 1098, Keipen 1399, Vindreken 1273 and Raudmelen 972 m.o.h.
The race is 8.5 kilometers long and runs on asphalt without much difference in height. To get to the starting point at Tjugum, take a shuttle boat from Holmen (center) to Tjugum. Start at Tjugum Church and finish at the place "Balahaugen" about 1 kilometer from the center.
Balestrand sports team emphasizes creating an event for everyone - both in terms of content, physical shape and age. In recent years, quizzes have been placed in four posts around the fjord. Here you can test your local knowledge.
