Icefjord Midnight Marathon

Hungry for another race in Greenland? Then we have some really good news for you! 😀❄️🏃‍♂️

Today, we can reveal some of the details about our new race “Icefjord Midnight Marathon” that will take place in Ilulissat – a charming town located 350 km north of the Arctic Circle.

The race premieres 7 June 2020. At this time of year the sun never sets in Greenland. The race starts at 22:00 and you will run in the light of night. The race will include a stretch next to the Ilulissat Icefjord, a fjord filled with thousands of stupendous icebergs. With ice stretching out as far as the eye can see, this is a true trail run over rocky terrain – and if we are lucky, a whale or two will be splashing around! Choose between a half or full marathon.

The race has a limit of approximately 120 runners. If you are excited about this challenge, you can keep yourself posted about the event on the Facebooksite @IcefjordMidnightMarathon. The website and registration day is soon to come…

As always, you can purchase personal race day pictures from The Polar Circle Marathon via Marathon Photos 📷

Here come the pictures from today’s half-marathon race in Greenland. Congratulations to all the half finishers! And to all our 2019 Polar Circle Marathon participants, CONGRATS on your participation in one of the most challenging running events!

Today, 136 runners will take part in our challenging half-marathon passing through Greenland’s ice sheet.

101 of the half-marathon starters ran a full marathon yesterday! These tough runners will take part in the Polar Bear Challenge. Our fingers are crossed that they will withstand the challenges again today. This will give them the bragging rights of having finished both a half and a full marathon in just one weekend! 😁💪🏅

📸Yesterdays marathon race.

We are happy to share this year’s three unique finisher medals for The Polar Circle Marathon!

🏅 A medal for the half-marathon runners featuring an arctic silver fox.

🏅 A medal for the marathon runners featuring a tupilak. The word ‘tupilak’ means an ancestor’s soul or spirit. The spirit was called upon to occupy a figure created from various parts of animals. Today tupilaks are an important part of Inuit art.

🏅 A medal for those runners who finish the Polar Bear Challenge: both the half-marathon and the marathon. This is rewarded with a medal decorated with a polar bear.
