The parkrun Norway family is set to get another new member this autumn, with the start of the Festningen parkrun in Trondheim on the 27th October.
The fort at Kristiansten Festningen, dating from the 1680’s, is one of Trondheim’s iconic landmarks and we look forward to welcoming parkrunners from near and far to join us each Saturday. The course consists of 3 laps of the popular park surrounding the fort, with a scenic hill up and down to the start/finish area.
Festningen parkrun will be the world’s northernmost parkrun and the core team are excited to receive visitors from other parts of the world. The course is medium hilly and is run over a mixture of gravel paths and tarmac, so we can look forward to a nice run, no matter the weather.

The core team are currently busy getting ready for the big day, testing the equipment and going through the procedures. Trondheim is a busy university city and we are looking forward to introducing parkrun to the many locals, students and visitors in town. Festningen is already a popular spot, used by many for jogging and walking and we hope to welcome many of them into the parkrun community each Saturday.
Welcome to Festningen parkrun on the 27th October. Hope to see you there!
