Course:  The 2021 Icefjord Midnight Marathon will challenge you with hills, trails, and roads as you traverse the course. 
Entry Fee:

Weather: 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 5 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.
