Our events

Races and events

We have two major annual events, 3sjøersløpet and the Stavanger Marathon. In addition, the club has been responsible for the throwing carousel in recent years. We also organize other small events on the track, which are approved and posted on minidrett.

Stavanger Marathon

On the last Saturday in August, there’s a folk festival in central Stavanger. Our trails run along lakes and fjords. The surface is a wonderful combination of asphalt and gravel. Whether you want to run long or short, we have a distance for you. Choose between kids’ race, 5 km, half marathon, marathon and marathon relay.

3-Sjøersløpet is one of Norway’s most enjoyable events to take part in. Experience the excitement as thousands of people head out for a run. Follow one of our many skilled pacesetters. They help you maintain the right pace during the race so you can reach your goal. The trail is both varied and beautiful. Join us on a sightseeing tour of some of the best Stavanger has to offer. Out on the trail, there are lots of people, flags and music. This simply has to be experienced.
