The Suzuki Midnight Sun Run is held on the evening of the 24th of June, just after the longest day of the year (June 21st) when the daylight lasts through the night. The race starts between 21:00 and 22:00. In the Suzuki Midnight Sun Run there are three distances: half marathon, 10 k race and a 5 k race. The half marathon course is both challenging and beautiful with a wonderful view. The first half of the 10 k course is the same as for the half marathon and the 5 k course lies within and around the valley Laugardalur. 
 
Runners participating in all three distances will start running in the street Engjavegur and finish by the old laundry springs in Laugardalur. This should be a magical evening under the midnight sun where Laugardalur is in full bloom by this time of year. After the race all participants are invited to the geothermal outdoor swimming pool, Laugardalslaug, that also has to offer both hot tubs and a steam bath. 
 
Registration takes place on the website www.marathon.is/midnight-run where all further information about the Suzuki Midnight Sun Run can be found.
