Almost Seventy Degrees North

By Linda Tancs

The city of Tromsø, Norway lies inside the Arctic Circle at nearly 70 degrees north.  Home to the northernmost university, botanical garden and planetarium, its top of the world location gives rise to the phenomenon of the midnight sun in summer.  So what better place to hold a midnight sun marathon!  On 22 June runners from over 50 countries will compete under the evening’s sunny skies.  The marathon is the northernmost AIMS-certified running event in the world.
