Race Description

The course of the Reykjavik Marathon is unique, and very scenic. The marathon and the half marathon are one lap (except for the last part of the marathon, as it goes nearly the same route as the beginning of the race). The race starts and finishes down town 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 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.

The Reykjavik Marathon takes place at the end of August. The average temperature for this time of the year is about 12-14ºC or 54-57ºF which is ideal for running a marathon!
