The picturesque town of Ilulissat provides a colorful backdrop as the Icefjord Midnight Marathon winds its way to the UNESCO-accredited Ilulissat Icefjord. With ice streching out as far as the eye can see, embark on a true trail run over rocky terrain and past impressive icebergs that glitter under nocturnal sunlight.
The Icefjord Midnight Marathon offers the full marathon distance of 42.195 kilometers and a half marathon of 21.097 kilometers.
While we remain optimistic that the world will win control over Covid-19 during 2021 there’s obviously still uncertainty and questions for the coming year. We have used the past several months to become as prepared as possible to organize races in the post-corona era and are positive that we can live up to various restrictions and regulations set forth by the Greenland authorities. With that said, however, we understand that many of you may still wonder how Covid-19 will effect travelling in the year to come, which is why we have outlined our policy for possible Covid-19 travel restrictions to give you peace of mind while still being able to secure your spot at the Icefjord Midnight Marathon.
If the race is cancelled by Albatros Adventure Marathons you will receive a full refund of the payments made to Albatros Adventure Marathons.
If the race is postponed to a later date you will have the choice between moving your entry to the new date or receive a full refund of payments made to Albatros Adventure Marathons.
Note that the decision to cancel or postpone the race will be taken no later than 4 weeks prior to the event, but in most cases the decision will be taken at least 8 weeks in advance.
If official travel restrictions prohibiting you from travelling to Greenland and/or Denmark are in place 30 days before the event you can cancel your booking and receive a full refund of the payments made to Albatros Adventure Marathons.
