2021 Frozen Lake Marathon -cancelled due to c-19 restrictions.

All 2021 participants receive free entry for 2022 or 2023 race. 

Dear runner, we have no choice but to cancel the 2021 event due to the Norwegian national rules of not arranging events that attract people across borders from other municipalities. The regulations  (in Norwegian) can be read here: https://www.regjeringen.no/no/tema/Koronasituasjonen/oversikt-over-nasjonale-tiltak/id2826828/

We understand your disappointment. We are also very sad to make this decision, but we can not wait any further to hope for a better situation.

We automatically transfer your entry to the 2022 race at no cost. Do you prefer 2023 instead let us know. The date for 2022 and 2023 will be announced shortly.

Do you prefer a refund, please send us your account number and order confirmation to post@winterrun.com. Be aware a fee of 200 NOK will be deducted according to our general terms: https://frozenlakemarathon.com/general-terms/

We pray for your health and for the situation to return to normal by 2022.

Keep running!

Covid-19 info


The race will be held on the lake Tisleifjorden, Norway. It is located 819 meters above sea level. The ice covering the lake is about 80 cm thick, which carries 30 tons. The Ice Marathon course normally works as a test driving course for vehicles and car tyre traction, but now you have the opportunity to run it.

Finisher medal!

All finishers receive this exclusive wooden medal after crossing the finish line.
