Marathons not to miss: The Midnight Sun Marathon

2018-04-05

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?

    Try before you buy.
    Tried in one pair of trainers and felt my heels slipping. Tried with another pair and fit is good. Also love the support for my arches having had problems before with plantar fasciitis NHS issued kit was rubbish in trainers. I feel these would have been far better.

    Amazing!
    I’ve been dealing with Plantar Fasciitis for years and these insoles are incredible. I was starting to have a flare up again but since I’ve put these in my shoes, it has subsided. I run about 30-35 miles a week and they’ve held up really, really well!

    8 out of 10 for Enertor
    8 out of 10 for Enertor. 4 years ago I had to stop teaching the exercise classes I have loved doing for years. I stepped out of bed and couldn’t walk because of the excruciating pain in the bottom of both feet. I had caught the dreaded plantar fasciitis. So started endless rounds of different therapies – physiotherapy, strapping, bespoke designed orthotics , acupuncture, shock therapy, massage, osteopath and of course the internet. I didn’t realize there were so many experts in the world of foot pain! I had my own Pilates business teaching the over 50s; Zumba and dance were included. All teaching had to stop because I couldn’t use my feet. Then I saw this fancy box of insoles talking about new technology, and a completely new material which reduces shockwaves through the foot, so decided to try them. After some effort trying to trim them to fit they seem to be doing the trick. No pain in the heels even after one whole day of wearing. I shall be recommending them to my clients.

    Great insoles
    After experiencing plantar fasciitis in my right foot, I would try anything. These insoles are decreasing my pain and offer nice support. I would recommend these to friends and other runners!

    I have used them for badminton and feel less pressure on the knees. Only problem they are a bit thick for some shoes. Great in walking boots where insoles are removable. My husband also has a pair and finds them comfortable but not experiencing any difference in performance.

    After having some injury scares early season I felt that my insoles gave me the extra support that helped prevent injury so when the time came I was ready as ever. Now that I have won English schools and going to compete for England next week I can genuinely say the insole support I got was so helpful in training, and in races.

    Alien…
    These insoles absorb all shock and accelerate me forward when I run. I’ve tried insoles many times from different brands that promise what these insoles actually do.

    Back on the street – and loving it
    First run in these and I felt amazing. Had a spring in my step, and these soles gave me an added boost that will get me running again. Had a year off since my last marathon, with a knee injury. Fell out of love with running. Legs felt like lead. Put these in my shoes, knocked off a respectable 10k and have got the bug back. I’ve run 8 marathons in my time… clocked up thousands of training miles and have never been more excited about a new product… thought I’d left it all behind me, but that 9th and 10th marathon now look possible. Thanks
