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.
Wear your most patriotic T-shirt proudly and exchange it with a fellow participant. Breakfast and a traditional Irish Dancing show completes the Fun Run festivities…it’s a great way to warm up for the big day.
Of course, most of us do not enter expecting to compete with the likes of Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge (world record run of 2:01:39 in Berlin 2018) but to be a part of this race is fantastic and there is no pressure on club or social runners.
