#81: A Run with a View


This run is so scenic it tempts both fitness-buffs and leisurely Sunday joggers in equal measure. Begin your route from Bakke Bro and head for Bakklandet with its old-worldy charm (watch out for the cobbled street and bundles of tourists!) and continue along Nidelven taking in the majestic cathedral. Hang a right at the pedestrian bridge by Ila church, keeping your eye out for otters and continue over Skansen to the marina and swing bridge. Run along the ocean walkway, soak up the fresh sea air and enjoy the distraction of Munkholmen and wonderful art along the promenade. When you approach Brattøra you will take the bridge over the train tracks, turn left and follow the canal to cross the architecturally pleasing Blomsterbroen over to the ‘Sunny Side’. Once at Solsiden turn right at the bridge by the crane and you are on the home stretch for a coffee at Jacobsen and Svart and hey presto – cardio completed!

Total length – flat & easy 5.5km
