The world’s northern-most capital city. The land of fire and ice. A cultural festival like no other. A Marathon.
The Reykjavik Marathon returns for its 29th instalment this year, and at the risk of spoiling the surprise, it will be an amazing, unforgettable event. It always is. Attracting around 13,000 runners the event is popular yet intimate, and offers an experience which other events just can’t.
The city, the scenery, the people and the atmosphere are just part of what makes the Reykjavik Marathon such a special occasion.
The course itself is one of the most runner-friendly out there. Aside from the beautiful mountain and city scenery, the route is smoothly paved and very flat, combining with pleasant mid-teen temperatures to create a thoroughly enjoyable run for all involved.
As if this magnificent running experience wasn’t enough, the Reykjavik Marathon coincides with Reykjavik Culture Night, the anniversary of the Icelandic capital.
This means that a party atmosphere consumes the city on race day, and participants have the chance to celebrate the night away Icelandic style! With everything from string quartets to rock bands, art exhibitions to air shows and an impressive fireworks display to top it off, Reykjavik Culture Night is an unforgettable way to finish an unforgettable event.
