While one very popular race is The Great Fjord Run in Bergen, endorsed by Ethiopian former world champion Haile Gebrselassie, Jimmy Vika has more even more top races on his list.

“Running makes you open your senses and enhances the experience of nature. In addition, you can discover places that you don’t have access to from a car or a bus, and you can cover different areas and attractions in a short amount of time,” says Jimmy.

Throughout Norway, locals organise a whole host of races that are as diverse and exotic as the nature itself. Several races are on trails that take you through natural terrain.

Many races also have races for children, cultural events and lots of other fun activities, and have shorter distances for every level. 

Here are some of the top races in Norway!

  1. 1. The Midnight Sun Marathon, Tromsø

    Running under the midnight sun in the city of Tromsø at the end of June is something everyone should experience at least once. A fantastic atmosphere and unrivalled Arctic scenery make this a truly unique event.

  2. 2. The Spitsbergen Marathon, Svalbard

    Running on Svalbard is incredible. You get even closer to the pristine Arctic nature in running shoes. The local community works hard to give all visitors a good experience, and if you’re lucky, you might even spot a polar bear along the route.

  3. 3. The Hardangervidda Marathon, Hardanger

    Start in the fjord-side town of Eidfjord in Hardanger and run through picturesque scenery. Discover famous areas up close, including the Hardangerjøkulen glacier, the Vøringsfossen waterfall, and the Hardangervidda mountain plateau.
