Marathons not to miss: The Midnight Sun Marathon


We love showcasing the world’s most interesting marathons. The Midnight Sun Marathon is run in Tromsø, Norway and it’s not one you should miss. 

Tromsø is an Artic city, perched almost on top of the world. During the Arctic summer, from the end of May to the end of July, the sun never sets. This creates a unique opportunity to undertake new challenges in the mysterious environment of a night time filled with daylight. Why not run a marathon? 

The race will be held on 16 June 2018. If you’re not ready for a full marathon, you can take on the half or 10K distance. Bring the family north for a unique experience and get the kids involved with the Children’s Fun Run. 

The course itself has some elevations but the second half is much flatter. This should give runners some respite in the last miles of the race. It’s primarily a coastal track that wraps around the Norwegian Sea, so there will be endless views to soak up while runners are on the track. Midnight Sun Marathon runners will take in manmade sights too, like the stunning Artic Cathedral and the Bridge of Tromsø. Participants will come into city for a hero’s welcome at the finish line. 

It’s a well-supported event with plenty of water stations and food available at the marathon distance. First aid stations are established every 5km, so participants are well looked after. All finishers receive a medal but beware the 5:30 race cut off time. 

Entry fees for the Marathon are around £80. Registrations can be taken on the day if there are places remaining. This is a small event with only 1000 slots available for the marathon distance. If you’re thinking about doing it, it’s best to register soon. Why not add a quirky and challenging Midnight Sun Marathon to your bucket list?

What people are saying about Enertor insoles?

    First timer
    Received my first pair of enertor. Very comfortable and took a load of pressure of my lower back.

  • Jody L.

    great for cushioning, but they hurt my feet
    I really like the cushioning and bounce of these insoles, however, the way they are contoured, they make my feet sore on the outside of my foot, opposite the arch. The pain goes away after two or three miles so maybe my feet just need some time to adjust to them or maybe I need to try them in some different shoes. I’ve only had them a couple of weeks.

    Helped me score more goals
    When I first put my Enertor insoles in my football boots, I noticed the insole material that I took out was very flimsy and already had compressed to about a millimetre. The Enertor insoles felt like they gave much more protection and felt great. I scored 5 goals in my next match and then 3 in the following match! Thanks Enertor! I would recommend this product to anyone who wants more protection and wants to perform better.

    Revitalised some very old road shoes
    These insoles were great, they’ve given a whole new lease of life to some very well used trainers that were going in the bin, now, they have helped me avoid spending that money, very comfortable, pretty full in size, so they are fine with normal trainers, but probably won’t work so well with minimalist footwear.

    These Really Helped
    I often get blisters on my arches because running shoes try to cushion too much… These insoles were great because they lift your heel a bit higher, and the arch falls away a bit closer to the heel so there’s less rubbing. I’m only a beginner runner – training for a 5 mile run, but so far these have really helped to keep my energy up, reduce blisters and keep a spring in my step!

    I really like these insoles. They feel really comfortable and have helped my knees through lots of running! Would definitely recommend.

    wont fit in spikes, but great for training shoes
    These are too thick to fit in track spikes, but they feel great in my training flats and regular running shoes. They even brought back to life, some shoes that I thought were worn out.

  • Joe

    Great Insoles
    These make me run as fast as Usain!

  • Pieter Hulleman

    Enertor 3/4 insole
    Works great in shoes with smaller volume. Really good for soccer shoes and dress shoes.

  • Imogen B.

    Great Support
    Foot feels supported and secure and the insoles appear to be very durable
