The Icefjord Midnight Marathon will be run on a variety of surfaces: pavement and gravel roads in and around the town, a short stretch on a wooden path, and rocky trails.
Packing for north of the Arctic Circle is all about layers. Even though it is summer, it will not be "warm" by most people's definitions. In general, it is a good idea to have a base layer that will warm up your body (merino wool, for example), as well as a wind-protective outer layer. The weather can change rapidly, so having extra layers is a good idea. That way, you can adapt to warmer or cooler conditions.
What to Bring:
• Practical clothing incl. a warm jacket
• Hiking boots
The Marathon starts at 21:00 in the evening and the Half Marathon starts 22:30
The race officially ends at 4:00.
This means that marathon runners have a cut-off time of 7 hours, while half-marathon runners have a cut-off time of 5 1/2 hours. All runners with a net finishing time slower than these cut-offs will receive a FNT (Finished No Time) on the result list.
After 4:00, we will drive around and collect any runners still on the route. Any marathon runners that have not begun their second loop within 4 hours will be held back at the start/finish area (the half-way point).
As we are significantly above the Arctic Circle, participants should prepare for the day to be chilly, with an average temperature between 6 and 7°C (43 - 45°F). Ilulissat averages about 7 days of rain in June, so there is a small chance that the race will see some rain. That said, June is known as a dry month in Greenland.
