This year’s BCM T-shirt can be ordered when you sign up for 100 NOK. The t-shirt, both in women’s and men’s models, has a good fit. We also sell the t-shirt at the Sport Expo for 150 NOK.

When you collect your BIB number an orange luggage bag will be handed to you. There is one bag for each runner, but for safety reasons it will only be marathon runners (42 km) who can use the bag to store clothes in Vikinghallen. No other bags can be used for storing clothes.  In the envelope, together with the bib, you will find a sticker with your number. This sticker MUST be placed on the bag, or else we won’t accept it.

Pacemakers on marathon and half marathon

The pacemakers will be a few minutes ahead of schedule to be able to “slow down a bit” at the end. Descents and ascents will also affect the speed. It is not smart to run to fast in the uphill and become to tired, or to run to fast in the downhill and become injured.

Consider your own strengths and weaknesses during the race. If you loose the flag at the drinking-
stations, do not stress, you will soon catch up with them in a few kilometres. With many runners the drinking stations can become a bit chaotic, but try to get enough nutrition. Think positive! Smile to the crowd! Give out some “high fives” to the children! Remember that pain is temporary. Endorphins are your friend. Use your own watch – the pacemakers are only human 😉 Good luck!

The pacemakers are equipped with flags on their back. They will be very visible. We have pacemakers who run the times shown here:
