The Polar Circle Marathon - often referred to as "the coolest marathon on Earth" - takes place in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. The endless ice and arctic tundra of this vast country are the backdrop for this unusual race, in which runners race through the soundless arctic desert past glacier tongues and moraine landscapes. This is a rare opportunity to visit one of the most remote corners of the world while daring to take part in an extremely challenging running event.
Runners can choose between the marathon Saturday or half marathon Sunday or run both by joining the Polar Bear Challenge!
