Overview

Start and finish in the city centre. After 2K you'll be crossing The Bridge of Tromsø.  The bridge rises from 6 up to 43 meters over sea level and brings runners to Tromsdalen where the sight of the Arctic Cathedral with the mountains behind is a great view. After running about 20K the runners recross the bridge, and return through the city centre. The second half of the course is mainly flat and quite easy to run. The course has been measured and controlled by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS).
