Hi runners and welcome to Tromsø!
Northern Runners is a network of runners in the Tromsø region. We are currently 383 members of a closed Facebook group. We inspire each other to put on our running shoes. We run all the year, in the midnight sun and in the cold and dark winter. Rumour has it that polar bears are strolling in the streets of Tromsø, but none of them have kept us from running yet :)
Some of us participate in races throughout the year. Midnight Sun Marathon is the race that attracts most runners. We hope to be 200 runners on the event on June 30, 2012. On Polar Night Halfmarathon in just a few days, we are currently the biggest team with almost 50 runners on three distances (21,1 km, 10 km and 5 km). Here you can see the race course for the halfmarathon:
Enjoy the video and don’t hesitate to contact us before or after the race. Most of us will wear the official Northern Runners outfit for Polar Night Halfmarathon sponsored by Thon Hotels Tromsø:
There’s a party on Saturday evening. Hope to see you there as well.
Good luck to all runners!
