Event Information:

 

The Oslo Marathon is an annual marathon that takes place between the end of September and the beginning of October. There are four distances; marathon, half-marathon, 10 and 3 km. The track goes along the seaside of Oslofjord. It is very flat, and competitors in the marathon run it twice. The first Oslo Marathon took place in 1994. After some years without any long distance race, the capital of Norway re-launched the Oslo Marathon in 2004. The number of participants in the 2010 edition was close to 16,000, of which almost 50% were women.

The Oslofjord' is a bay in the south-east of Norway, stretching from an imaginary line between the Torbjørnskjær and Færder lighthouses and down to Langesund in the south to Oslo in the north. In spite of its name, the Oslofjord is not a fjord in the geological sense - in Norwegian the term "fjord" can refer to a wide range of waterways. The bay is divided into the inner (indre) and outer (ytre) Oslofjord at the point of the 17 km long and narrow Drøbaksundet.

The entire population situated around the Oslofjord including Oslo is about 1.86 million, and the total population of all the counties situated around the fjord is approximately 2 million. Each of the islands in the innermost part of the fjord has its own identity and distinguishing history. Among them are Hovedøya, Lindøya, Nakholmen, Bleikøya, Gressholmen, and Langøyene. These islands can easily be reached with the Oslo-boats from Vippetangen. Hovedøya is most famous for its monestary ruins, Gressholmen for its rabbits, Nakholmen, Bleikøya, Lindøya for their cosy cabins at the water’s edge, and finally Langøyene for its camping possibilities and pleasant beach. In the summer there are boats of all sizes on the fjord, and it is possible to go kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and sailing. There are many activities for both adults and children.
