Here is my best explanation:

'run' is the definition.
(sprinting is a kind of running)

'various trips round capital of norway' is the wordplay.
'various' is an anagram indicator.
'round' is an insertion indicator.
'capital of' indicates taking the first letters.
The first letter of 'norway' is 'n'.
'trips' with letters rearranged gives 'sprit'.
'sprit' placed around 'n' is 'SPRINT'.
