About Us

Festningen parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for participants of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:30 in Kristiansten Festningen, 7015 Trondheim. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, regardless of age or gender, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to run, jog or walk together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

After the run each week, we meet at Dromedar Kaffebar, by Bakke bru (Nedre Bakklandet 77). It is only a short walk straight downhill from the start/finish area.

Vi samles for en kopp kaffe på Dromedar Kaffebar ved Bakkebru etter løpet hver uke. Kaféen er bare en kort gåtur nedoverbakken fra mål-området. Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other parkrunners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.
