parkrun to return in Norway

Stavanger cover

Following on from recent announcements about the reopening plans for parkruns in other Nordic countries, we are pleased to now report that events in Norway will start to return from the end of this month.
The situation in Norway has been complicated, with both local and national restrictions to consider, and different rules in place for different kinds of events. Our volunteer teams have been waiting patiently for the situation to improve and for our events to be able to return.
Festningen start
Leading the way will be Festningen parkrun in Trondheim and Stavanger parkrun, both of which will start back on Saturday July 31st. Exact dates for other Norwegian events are yet to be confirmed, but we hope that all our existing events will return by the end of August, with a new event, Nansenparken parkrun in Fornebu (just outside Oslo), starting soon after that.
Like in other countries, all events will be following the parkrun COVID-19 Framework, which outlines how our parkruns will be held safely when we restart.
After over 16 months away, it is great to welcome Norway back to the parkrun family and to see that by the first week of August we will have events taking place in all four Nordic countries.
