About the race

Join Norways’ biggest winter running race!

Experience the Polar Night with approximately 2000 runners from all over the world. The PolarNight Marathon takes place in the middle of the day, but at this time of year the sun never rises above the horizon. In the absence of the sun there will be darkness and the amazing display of colours that is so special for this time of year. If we are lucky with the weather you will be running under the  Northern lights (Aurora Borealis).

We offer four road races during the PolarNight Marathon and these are certified by AIMS.
