RACE FEEDBACK

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. It’s a hot bed of geothermal activity with geysers, hot springs, and lava rock – what’s more, the volcanic zone is still very much active.

 

With the massive Hverfjall crater as the focus of the route, runners will pass through soft, black volcanic sand as they run the rim of the crater, as well as pass through the ethereal lava fields known as Dimmuborgir, or "Dark Fortress," and under a wild natural arch. The route traverses single-track trail, plains of lava lock, and several minor volcano craters.

 

The marathon and half-marathon will both begin at 7:30 in the morning, and both races have a time limit of 7 hours from the start of the marathon. The quarter-marathon will start slightly after the other two races, but everything will be finished by 14:30.

 

For marathon runners, a 5 hour cut-off point lies at the 32.5km mark.

 

Runners still on the route after the time is up, or haven't passed the cut-off point in time, will be picked up by a race official or medical car and driven back to the finish area.
