Runners from all over the world

Polar Bear Marathon Guard Svalbard

Running a marathon on Svalbard is a unique experience. Temperature-wise, the conditions are ideal. It's neither too hot nor too cold, maybe the the mild and dry Arctic summer - along with the possibility of a polar bear around the next corner - will help you beat personal records?!

Spitsbergen Marathon is truly an international race. Runners from all over the world gather at 78 degrees north to run in the world's most northern marathon on permanent ground. The local residents of Longyearbyen cheer for everyone, and the town turns into a running hot spot for a few days as the marathon goes on. After the race, we organize a banquet where you'll be served a big, delicious - calorie rich - meal while you get to meet and mingle with the other runners.
