Program Oppdal Mountain Marathon 2023

In addition to the race experience itself, we also offer you some extra spice with lectures and an after-run event. We hope you enjoy yourself in Oppdal during the last weekend of August!

The mountain is the main arena for the race weekend, but a lot happens around and in Oppdal town center. Oppdal Cultural Center is the hub for most activities on both Friday and Saturday. It is located right in the center and easy to find, whether you're staying at a hotel, cabin, or coming for a day trip.


News

New this year is the lectures in the main hall of Oppdal Cultural Center. And it is none other than cross-country skiing queen Marit Bjørgen who will be visiting. How did she become a uniquely exceptional athlete, and how can we as recreational runners improve? The lecture will be held in Norwegian.


Our partner VPG will be present in the cultural center throughout the weekend. In addition to selling "bread and butter" items like socks, backpacks, and other gear that runners appreciate, make sure to check out Dynafit Shoe Demo. Here, you can test shoes and chat with experts who have exceptional knowledge about running shoes. There is also an opportunity to purchase sports nutrition from Moonvalley at VPG's running booth.


You are also invited to the After-Run on Saturday afternoon. The restaurant Spisbar, located just a stone's throw away from the cultural center, opens its doors for the marathon participants from 5:00 PM. There are 100 spots available, and it's first-come, first-served. Read more about the After-Run and registration here.


The Mini-Marathon is also an exciting new addition. Children aged 2 to 10 are invited to a simple but fun loop course. The start and finish are at Oppdal Cultural Center. There will be warm-up exercises, candy stations along the route, mascots, and medals at the finish. As a bonus prize, all the little participants will receive free movie tickets at Oppdal Cultural Center.
