Service on race day

The 2024 Suzuki Midnight Sun Run takes place on Thursday June 20th. Here you can find information about the service available for runners on race day.


    The timing chip is built into the race bib. Mats will be located at the start/finish line where participants will run over. No race bib = no time. Each chip has a number in our database which is linked to an individual runner. Timing starts when a participant runs over the mat and finishes when he runs over it again when finishing the race. Chip time therefore gives an accurate time for the assigned runner regardless of his position at the start.

    First three men, women and non-binary in all distances will get a prize medal and gifts from the race sponsors. Age group prizes will also be given. See further information about prizes here.

    Course patrol

    Around 100 staff members will be working on the course on race day. They will guide the runners and control the traffic. Runners should although study the race map because there will be parts of the course where no staff is visible, for example in the direct sections.

    Medical service

    First aid will be available by the finish line, in the case of an emergency ambulance will be called. It is recommended that runners write a name and telephone number of a friend or family member that should be called in case of emergency on the back of the bib number.

    Drinking stations

    Participants will be able to quench their thirst every 5K. Ölgerdin provides Gatorade drinks and water for the drinking stations. See detailed location of the drinking stations on the race map.


    Participants that arrive by car can park by Laugardalshöll sports hall when picking up the race number. It is recommended to park by street Suðurlandsbraut just before the race since road Engjavegur will be closed some parts of the evening.

    Midnight swimming

    Close by the start and finish of the race is one of the city’s wonderful geothermal outdoor swimming pools, Laugardalslaug. All participants are invited to the swimming pool, hot tubs and steam baths after the race. It's a perfect way to relax after a successful race in the midnight sun.


    Photographers will take pictures of runners, they will try to get pictures of as many participants as possible.


    The bag storage in Skautahöll is open from 19:30-00:00. Participants can leave their bags in storage in Skautahöll, ice-skating rink. The belongings will be guarded but responsibility is not guaranteed for any valuables or money left in the storage area.
