February 03, 2020 - A fun winter running event in the heart of Oslo.
This race is held at the time of year when snow and ice conditions are likely, so for previous years, around 50% of the participants have opted for studded shoes or overshoes with studs. However this year the course was free of snow and ice, and the conditions were fast compared to previous years. I choose my regular lightweight Hoka one one tracer shoes, and it worked out fine. The course had some muddy sections, along with slippery cobblestones, stair sections and some sharp turns. Overall happy with the placing in my category, although my goal was to finish around 40min. A great event with tons of happy people, thanks to the organizers, volunteers and spectators!
