This is BMW Oslo Maraton 2021

In 1981, the first edition of the Oslo Marathon was arranged. This year, 40 years later, we look forward to inviting you to run in the streets of Oslo again after a difficult year affected by the pandemic.

This year's anniversary edition will be a little different, but the organizer looks forward to being able to once again invite people to run together.  

On September 18, we will be able to do what we like best, namely to arrange a race where we can run together again. It has been a different time with alternative virtual activities, but now we look forward to once again filling the town hall square.

Half marathon and 10 for Grete in focus, the marathon distance and the triple are cancelled

Will will work to ensure a safe and feasible race in the streets of Oslo with a focus on completing the Half Marathon and 10 for Grete, in addition to 10 kilometers wheelchair, para, 10km plowing and the Children's Marathon. 

We have decided to focus on two main distances throughout the day. This will enable us to a greater extent ensure a safe event with regard to infection control. We will use our established 10 kilometer trail on both distances, which means that we take less seizure in the cityscape and ensure greater mobility for the population in the city. Half marathon will run 2 laps, plus an extra loop.

The Oslo Marathon is technically demanding, and we as organizers have to make decisions in a reasonable time. It is a large apparatus that is going to turn, so we choose not to complete the marathon distance this year in light of the uncertainty that still prevails. Unfortunately, this will also mean that this year's Oslo triple will be canceled.

Throughout history, the Oslo Marathon has been arranged without a separate marathon distance many times, but this is very temporary, until next year we will again have a marathon on the program. In addition, we are working to reintroduce the 3 kilometer "3 for All" in order to be able to bring the masses with us to an even greater extent.

This year's course will be very fast and the NM will get a lot of attention

By using the 10 kilometer trail, we will be able to see good times for those who want to invest in this. In addition, this year's race will be a perfect opportunity for those who do not have much running experience to have a good experience.

The Oslo Marathon's 10 kilometer course has the start and finish at Rådhusplassen in Oslo. You run west towards Skøyen, where the trail returns along Frognerkilen in beautiful surroundings surrounded by the fjord on the right, before you run into Oslo's urban area over Tjuvholmen and Aker Brygge, through Rådhusplassen and the Oslo Harbour before a small round into the city center that brings you back to the majestic Town Hall Square. The same course is run twice for the half marathon.

We have great faith that both distances will be very fun to follow this year, and in addition, this year's NM in Half Marathon elite for men and women, will get a lot of focus directly on NRK1. NRK wants to be involved in making live TV broadcasts throughout the day. Here we will be able to show both the elite, the breadth and the volunteerism in a good way, and not least show a proud 40th anniversary that has left its mark on our city for four decades.

Follow the Oslo Marathon's channels for ongoing information about this year's event. We are now working around the clock to facilitate a successful event, 40 years since the very first edition in 1981.
