Be a force of nature! Set near Lake Mývatn, at the divergent boundaries of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, the Iceland Volcano Marathon route will be run directly in the North Volcanic Zone.
The marathon route is mainly flat and is known for its fast and beautiful course. The start and finish take place in the historical Olympic Stadium. And every year this leaves an unforgettable impression.
