Rune Almenning Jarstein (born 29 September 1984) is a Norwegian international footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Hertha Berlin. He has previously played for Odd Grenland, Rosenborg and Viking, and has been capped for the Norwegian national team.
Jarstein made his debut in the Norwegian Premier League, aged 18, playing for Odd Grenland in 2002. In 2007, after Odd Grenland had been relegated to the Norwegian First Division, he was transferred to Rosenborg.
Jarstein has been capped 30 times at youth level for Norway.
On 23 August 2007, he made his debut for the Norway national team, playing 45 minutes in a 2–1 win over Argentina. When Jon Knudsen was injured in 2011, Jarstein became the new first-choice goalkeeper at the national team, and was the first choice until the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification started in September 2012, when Espen Bugge Pettersen played the match against Iceland. Jarstein was however back in the starting line-up in the next match against Slovenia, and in January 2013 the goalkeeper coach on the national team Frode Grodås stated that Jarstein was the first-choice goalkeeper.
