Midnight Sun Marathon

Run in the midnight sun. Competitors need to register in plenty of time for this unique race in Northern Norway.
Tromsø 20 Jun 2015 to 20 Jun 2015

The world's northernmost marathon attracts every year runners from over 50 nations, who compete at night, but in broad daylight – courtesy of the midnight sun, which doesn't set in this part of Arctic Norway from mid-May to mid-July. The marathon itself is the main event, but there is also a half-marathon, a 10-kilometre race, a 4.2-kilometre fun-run, and a children's race, so the whole family can take part. Please note that pre-registration is necessary.
