About Knarvikmila - The Great Fjord Run

Knarvikmila is Norway's most magnificent running event. This year, KnarvikMila takes place at the beginning September.

KnarvikMila is more than one race and more than a single distance. It is also more than a sports event. This is a week filled with cultural and sports events.

See our programme for more information and take a look at our different distances. KnarvikMila was founded in 1982 by initiator and enthusiast Helge Brekke and is arranged by the athletic association FIL-AKS77. Since 1982, thousands of feet have run along roads and tracks in Knarvik for a week every autumn. In 2017, 500 volunteers worked to create a memorable event for 8000 participants.

Without a group of volunteers extending far beyond the members of the athletic association it would be
impossible to pull off the event that KnarvikMila has become: a whole week of activities including a conference, concerts and trade fair.
