Big Five Marathon Polar Circle Marathon
25 & 26 October, 2014, Greenland – The coolest marathon on earth!
The Polar Circle Marathon and Half Marathon
25 & 26 October 2014 

Welcome to an extraordinary marathon in truly magnificent scenery.

Combine your visit to remote Greenland with a unique arctic race. Run on the vast ice sheet and experience breathtaking polar landscapes in this challenging running event. THIS YEAR INTRODUCING "THE POLAR BEAR CHALLENGE"!

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 make up the backdrop of this unusual race., in which runners pass glacier tongues, moraine landscapes and the soundless, arctic desert. This is a rare opportunity to visit one of the most remote corners of the world combined with a challenging running event.

A part of the route takes place on the ice cap itself, but the main part of the course is run on the gravel road (often snow covered) that connects the inland ice with the small township of Kangerlussuaq, just north of the Polar Circle.

For the first time the half marathon and marathon will be held on separate days, giving you the opportunity to run them both and complete The Polar Bear Challenge!
