About the Oslo Maraton
BMW Oslo Marathon is one of Norway's largest street races with around 20,000 participants. The race is held on the 3rd Saturday in September every year, and runs through the streets of Oslo, starting and finishing at Rådhusplassen. With our 5 different distances, we want to include as many people as possible in what we want to be an autumn festival in Oslo.
Our main values are quality of life, coping and community. We want to create an event where everyone will participate; the event will have offers for everyone, and be arranged for different types of participants.
We have separate classes for people with disabilities in the distances 10 for Grete, half marathon and marathon. Read more about our para classes here.
The Vidar Sports Club owns the Oslo Marathon, and the profits from the event go in full to the club, and sports enjoyment for children and young people. You can read more about the club on their website.
The Oslo Marathon was held for the first time in 1981, and in 2021 we celebrated 40 years! You can read more about the history of the Oslo Marathon here .
