Reykjavik Marathon and Half Marathon
August 24, 2013
Iceland in August. Need we say more? Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, is a little-known gem of a destination. Relax in the swirling steam of geothermal swimming pools. Dine on fresh fish in one of many celebrated restaurants. Explore galleries and museums filled with fascinating Icelandic and international works. Enjoy nature's own artistic palette awaiting you in the nearby countryside.
The country is a natural wonderland with its volcanoes, geysers, waterfalls and ancient mountains. Learn how Iceland's unique geology has been sculpted by fire and ice over eons. Straddle two continents as you step onto the Mid-Atlantic ridge, the boundary between North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
Iceland is only a five-hour flight from the East Coast on Icelandair. Special fares are available in conjunction with these packages from the gateway airports of JFK, Boston, Seattle and Minneapolis. Add-on fares are available from most major cities. Service from Toronto and Halifax is also available on select dates. Call or email for a quote.
There is a distance for every level of fitness. Choose either the marathon, half-marathon, 10K, marathon relay race, or 3K fun run. You will be joined by hundreds of Icelanders in perfect running temperatures and the cleanest air imaginable since the entire city is heated with geothermal energy.
