Über Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon

The annual Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon will take place in mid August, the same day as Reykjavik Culture Night. The Marathon starts and finishes in Laekjargata, in the heart of Reykjavik.

Runners can choose from six different distances: marathon, half marathon, relay race, 10 km race, 3 km fun run and a LazyTown run. The race offers an atmosphere which is both relaxed and welcoming. Around 1,000 runners participate in the marathon and 2,000 in the half marathon, making both races less crowded than is generally the case in larger events. Since the Reykjavik Marathon also includes 10k, 3k fun run and children’s run distances, it’s also a family event and fits all age groups and levels.

The running conditions in Reykjavik marathon are usually extremely comfortable – the route is smoothly paved and very flat, while the weather tends to be breezy and in the mid-teens centigrade. Much of the Reykjavik Marathon route is along the coast line of Reykjavik and Seltjarnarnes, offering participants the benefits of the fresh breeze from the ocean with some blue mountains in the backdrop. Participation in the Reykjavik Marathon is surely a lifetime experience and a unique way to see the city.

HIGHLIGHTS

he course of the Reykjavik Marathon is unique, and very scenic. The race starts and finishes downtown within sight of the pond and the city hall. The location is unbeatable, considering that a large number of hotels are within 5 to 10 minutes' walking distance from the start of the race. The first part of the course runs through a residential area where many of the inhabitants come out of their houses to cheer the runners on. This is followed by a section where the runners pass along the seaside and have excellent views of the ocean, but also of the mountains surrounding Reykjavik, including Esjan and the Snæfellsjökull glacier. Participants in the marathon also run through the Elliðaárdal valley, the location of one of the country's more popular salmon-fishing rivers, a small waterfall, and some woodland. The participants pass a number of famous buildings, including Höfdi House, a Reykjavik City Council reception venue where US President Ronald Reagan and USSR General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev met for a summit in 1986.
