START: REYKJAVIK ART MUSEUM - HAFNARHÚSIÐ The race starts in Hafnarhúsið. Through the rhythmic music and lights participants ditch their inhibitions and enjoy their own electric runway. The run also finishes inside the Museum. AUSTURVÖLLUR Dancers display fantastic dancers decorated in illuminated equipment. HARPA CONCERT HALL Our beautiful concert hall, Harpa, will be lit up to celebrate this day, so prepare your mind for a mesmerising sight. SKÓLAVÖRÐUSTÍGUR ROAD A DJ and some dancers will be cheering you on road Skólavörðustígur. HALLGRÍMSKIRKJA CHURCH Hallgrimskirkja church is one of the main landmarks in Reykjavik. Imagine you are walking into another dimension when entering the church, experience the music and lights in a perfect unity in this magnificent building and just take it all in. Hallgrímskirkja church is the only part of the course where participants are not allowed to run. HLJÓMSKÁLINN When passing Hljómskálinn, a building that was built in 1922 and is housing the Reykjavik city band, lights will be all around and reflect in the water you will be running along. The water is called Tjörnin, which translates to simply, The Pond. SKOTHÚSVEGUR ROAD Road Skothúsvegur is partly a bridge that lies over the Pond. A DJ and some bubbles if the weather allows will bring some joy to the runners. REYKJAVIK'S CITY HALL The City Hall will be decorated with colourful lights and music will be playing as participants run through the building. The City Hall is located by the Pond (Tjörnin). CATHEDRAL By the Reykjavik Cathedral (Dómkirkjan) there will be a gate with lights, music and people cheering runners on. FINISH: REYKJAVIK ART MUSEUM - HAFNARHÚSIÐ The last stop will be at Hafnarhúsið, the same place as the race started. Music and lights will be filling the room. Get ready to dance! Don't forget to visit one of the photo booths before you leave.
