Who says you can't walk (or run) on water? This remarkable event offers you the opportunity to do exactly that on the frozen waters of the Tisela Fjord in Norway. 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. Every step is taken on pure ice, it's 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!

Transport from Oslo

The easiest way to travel from Oslo to Gol is by train, it takes aproximately two-and-half hours.

We recommend catching the 12.03 from Oslo. There will be a shuttle bus from the train station in Gol to the hotel at 15.00. 

We recommend that you arrive at Oslo Airport on Wednesday the 23 of March or early Thursday morning.
