Polar night half marathon

Hi there I am looking to get any information on partaking in the polar night half marathon ? I am 44 and have done two half marathons a few years back and am doing one in September I expect a time of 2.35 so not quick but steady away !! I am really keen on taking part in January but just need some advice !! Budget places to stay ? What to wear and advice on running shoes ? Is it really difficult ? Also is it advisable to train in the clothes that you will be wearing ? Any help would be really appreciated x x

Sometimes it can be rain in January, so one year they run it was icy roads and quite wet, so you've to be prepared for all kind of weather... snowstorm, 15 minus and wind, and darkness of course... its the period of Polar Nights...

Please find all info about the run here, https:/…
