Help us avoid parking problems!

It’s great to see the huge number of entries for the O-Festival, especially for Saturday. This does present some extra challenges though, not least in respect to parking. Since we have a limited area we strongly encourage clubs and runners to co-ordinate driving - right in line with the recommendations of Gro Harlem Brundtland, Al Gore and the UN!


Best wishes,

Jørgen Holmboe
- and all of the 250 other organisers!

Viktig om terrengsperring, trening på Sandbakken

This information regarding embargoed area is only important for Norwegian runners attending the test races for the Nordic championships next year, thus no English translation needed.

Det viser seg å være en overlapp mellom sperret terreng for NOM uttak 25. - 26.mai neste år og en av treningene til årets O-festival. Siden at mange allerede har løpt den aktuelle treningen fra Sandbakken så åpnes deler av NOM-uttakssperringen.

Se presisering av sperringen på kart som du finner på oversikten over treningsoppleggene.
