The 2021 Icefjord Midnight Race Events have been canceled due to COVID-19. The 2022 dates are tentative. Once confirmed, details will be updated.
New to our 2021 Race Calendar! The Icefjord Midnight Marathon takes place in the picturesque town of Ilulissat, a colorful backdrop that winds its way through the ancient Inuit ruins of Sermermiut to the UNESCO-accredited Ilulissat Icefjord. With ice stretching out as far as the eye can see, embark on a true trail run over rocky terrain and past impressive icebergs that glitter under nocturnal sunlight.
Illulissat is an extraordinary winter wonderland located about 300KM above the Arctic Circle in the Disko Bay on the western coast of Greenland. It is Greenland’s third largest city with a population of 5,000 people. Although this small number may be surprising, the fact that there are almost as many sled dogs as people is even more so!
We offer a four-night and a five-night package with several optional excursions such as kayaking among the icebergs - this frosty gem is the perfect place to explore on the water, especially where it is home to more than 15 species of whales! You can also hike and sail to the Oqaatsut Settlement as well as experience Kaffemik where you will learn more about the life of sled dogs. Two optional post-race extensions are available as well. Consider joining us and taking an adventure of a lifetime!
