With the exception of the Mini Marathon, parents are not allowed to run with their children.  Designated officials will both run with the children and be plassed around the runningtrack. The entire running track will be fenced in for safety.

Due to safety concerns it will only be possible to pick up children at the entrance/exit to the runningtrack. Children will be let out one at a time. Children who cannot find their parent by the exit will be taken care off by an official from Læringsverkstedet Idrettsbarnehagen. ALL children will have a bracelet with their parents details registered. This will also be used to help identify parents of lost children.

When picking up your bib number, you will receive the mentioned bracelet. One for the kid and one for the resposible grown up. Parents/Responsible adults must show their name tag when picking up their child at the finish area.


Bib Number Pick UP

In the week before the event you will receive a start card to your registered email address. To pick up your bib number you must bring your start card  together with a valid form of ID.

If you are picking up a start number on behalf of someone else, you will have to show their start card and a valid copy of their ID.


On Thursday and Friday you can pick up your Kids Marathon bib number at the “Barnas Maraton” stand in Expo at Rådhusplassen.
