Track and weather conditions

Description of the tracks (road, landscape) The SAGAMARSJEN, organized by the Idrettskrets, is a two days march. The first day in the mountain-area, the border Sweden-Norway. The second day in the area around Stiklestad, nearby the sea. Stiklestad and Verdal is about 90 km north of Trondheim.
Both days of this march are intended to follow the last day's march of King Olav the Saint and his Army, from Medstugan Sweden to Stiklestad Norway in the year 1030. His enemies came from all over the country, but their chieftains were the mighty lords of Trøndelag and the Northern Norway. King Olav was killed at Stiklestad and lost the battle. But a number of miracles occuring before and after the Kings death, turned the defeat into a glorious victory. He became the Holy King to many people throughout Northern Europe.

Good care along the road At every starting place and finish line, and throughout the entire course, you can buy snacks and food. You will have coffee, lemonade and water for free.
