Start at Vaterlandsparken

From the start near Vaterlandsparken, the runners will experience Akerselva River for the next 10 kilometres. The river Akerselva is the "vein of the city", running from the lake Maridalsvannet, which is Oslo's main supply of drinking water, through the city's most populated areas, ending in the Oslo Fjord. The river has significant value for the people of the city in many ways. Akerselva has a rich history connected to the industrialisation, which started around the year 1850. However, at the same time, it is today living proof of Oslo people's need for recreation in green areas and beautiful nature.

A network of byroads, as well as two T-bane lines (#1 and #3), provides dozens of access points to this wilderness, which is extremely popular with the capital’s outdoor-minded citizens.
