Frozen Lake Run, Marathon and Half Marathon

Date: 25 March, 2023

The Frozen Lake Marathon and Half Marathon is a unique running event, it's the only one we know about that is run entirely on water. Fortunately, the waters of the Tisela Fjord in Norway at the end March are frozen, so it's less challenging that it could be. But it's still a challenge. Running on snow and ice is a skill in itself but one that you can quickly master. It's one lap of the 21.1k course for the half-marathon or twice around if you running the full marathon.

The Frozen Lake Marathon and Half Marathon is a unique running event, it's the only one we know about that is run entirely on water. Fortunately, the waters of the Tisela Fjord in Norway at the end March are frozen, so it's less challenging that it could be. But it's still a challenge. Running on snow and ice is a skill in itself but one that you can quickly master.

It's one lap of the 21.1k course for the half-marathon or twice around if you running the full marathon. The Icebug Frozen Lake Marathon is limited to 500 runners of all abilities. Once you've mastered ice running you should be cover the distance quickly because this is the flattest race you'll ever run and an experience you’ll never forget.

Tisela Fjord ifjorden is located 819 meters above sea level in the Norwegian municipalities of Gol and Hemsedal, which is 200K north of Oslo.

For the most part, the ice on the lake is about 80 cm thick – with a carrying capacity up to 30 tons. The course is plotted by a support team of ice experts who monitor the lake closely in the days leading up to the event and throughout the race. For maximum safety the final course is laid out just days before the race starts. Among other things, the lake is used for testing vehicle tyres, emergency vehicles and drivers who want to test their skills in icy conditions, so it's not going to struggle to support the weight of 500 runners!
