17. MAIRATON 2021

The 17th of May is Norway’s National Day, and normally a day celebrated with music and parades all over the country. Due to the coronavirus the celebration in 2020 was very different, without the big parades and social gatherings.


We wanted to contribute to the celebration inviting everyone to join our virtual race, 17. Mairaton, and dress up in the colors of our flag, red, white and blue. Our goal was to spread joy, sense of achievement and fellowship on our national day, and give the people a fun alternative to the celebration in 2020.


 We have decided to do it again in 2021!


The BMW Oslo Maraton and 17th of May has one thing in common – it is a folkefest. Everyone is welcome to join wherever you are. All contestants that register their race are in the draw to win cool prices. And of course the winner of each distance is rewarded.
