The mini marathon is a fun run that everyone can participate in.
The race starts and finishes at the city centre. The runners are facing the Tromsø Bridge after 2 km; an uphill from 6 to 43 meters over sea level. After running about 20 km the runners recross the bridge, and return through the city centre. The rest of the course is mostly flat and easy.
The adidas 10 km race is popular between both exercise and competitive runners. Among the participants you will find some of the best runners in the country and those who are competing only with themselves. This circuit extends from downtown Tromsø to the southern tip of the island, returning north to the airport, and back downtown to the finish line at Stortorget.
This course is relatively flat and follows the same route as the last 21 km of the marathon race.
