Hi :-), I am going to Norway in a few weeks to run the Midnight Sun Marathon. I was just wondering if there is anybody here who ran this race before and who could provide some intel about their experience. I've never been to Norway and am very excited about going and would welcome any info about your experiences - what's the race like, what the weather was, how's the organisation etc. Thanks in advance :-).

Hi, Darina - I didn't see your post until now, so can't tell you anything you don't now know - hope you had a great run: I loved this race! :-)

I have just signed up for this in 2014. How was the experience this year and do you have any tips?

Becca7 has done it. I got as far as forking out for race entry and hotels but missed the boat (literally) by leaving the flight booking too late, so that the only way I could've reasonably gotten there was by a 5 day ferry cruise thing which cost The Earth & went to every wee port between Bergen and Tromso! Book travel as soon as you're confirmed is my wee tip ;-)

Am sure Marts (Werrington Joggers) has done it as well, or maybe it was "only" the half

OM is right, I did this in 2007 (full mara), the bridge is brilliant, it rained loads, it's a fast course, but TBH it's not in my top 10 fave maras and I wouldn't rush back.

Got something to say?
