The Marathon starts at 8pm Saturday evening. If you finish by Midnight you will receive a special finisher top saying I beat the Midnight Marathon. All finishers will also receive a bespoke Finishers Medal.
The feedback from last year’s race was amazing 100% on Runners world web site
Don’t worry there is not a cut of time.
Due to the heat we will have 2 water stations on the run lap.
The start list is now on the web site above along with the race brief.
We now have our UK Athletics race licence. It took a time but we got there is the end.
Only 4 days to go till the 1st Dartford Midnight Marathon.
All the medals have now been ordered and if i say so myself they do look good.
The race brief will be going out on Monday the 29th with all your race numbers.
We have now registered the Midnight Marathon with UK athletics. They are happy with everything we have sent them. We just need to have the course verified that its 26.2 miles. When this has been done the event will count as a good for age Marathon spot for the 2016 London Marathon.
I will post on the web site when this has been confirmed.

Thank you to everyone that has already entered the Midnight Marathon. We are working on the Medal and t-shirts designs and we will post them on the web site as soon as they are finalized. We have now added the run course above. It’s the same course we use for the Midnight Man Triathlon. It’s flat and very fast.
The race will start at 8pm and every one that finishes before Midnight will receive a special finisher’s technical top. Don’t worry even if you take over 4 hours you will still receive a finishers t-shirt and Medal
