About the Race

WHY RUN IT?

Only in Iceland can you run through lava fields and glcial rivers, pass by mud pools and geysers, and then catch glimpses of the northern lights at night. Self-sufficient takes on a whole new meaning when you have to plan for cold, wet, unpredictable conditions.

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”

- Helen Keller

Iceland isn’t a large country, but it’s absolutely packed with natural beauty! Of course you’ll want to check out the Blue Lagoon and probably every other hot spring you can find after the race, but you may also want to go ice your legs in a glacial lake, like Jökulsárlón. You can even get more targetted icing action at Diamond Beach, where chunks of ice bedazzle the black sand shoreline.
