17. mairaton

The 17th of May is Norway’s National Day, and normally a day celebrated with fellowship, music and parades. Due to the coronavirus, this years celebration will be very different, without the big parades and social gatherings. We want 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 is to spread joy, sense of achievement and fellowship on our national day, and give the people a fun alternative to this years celebration. 


Everyone is welcome to join wherever you are and whenever you want – as long as you do the race on the 17th of May. And remember to follow the guidelines and rules from the authorities.

We are running together, but alone.
