DENMARK GREENLAND — 2019-10-26 — Kangerlussuaq. "The Polar Circle Marathon". Welcome to an extraordinary marathon in truly magnificent scenery. Combine your visit to remote Greenland with a unique Arctic race. Run on the vast ice sheet and experience breathtaking polar landscapes in this challenging running event.
