“My Reykjavik half marathon experience was extraordinary. The course, the scenery and the citizenry supporting the runners was completely magical.”
Over 2,500 foreigners took part in the Reykjavik Marathon which was held on 22 August 2015. Here are some of their stories.
Overall, the runners are positive about their experience in the race and with their visit to Iceland.
The comment above is from Tania Gail who also says: “The event organization, the number of runners and the course allows me to highly recommend this event to anyone.”
Andy Hoole reports: “all the activities and the atmosphere around the race were really enjoyable and may be a good excuse for a visit if you’ve always wanted to go –if your bank balance can afford it.”
This was Dane’s Rauschenberg’s 86th fastest marathon: “An idyllic setting if there ever was one for a marathon start I found myself craning my head sideways to check it out. The weather was darn near perfect with cloudy skies, a temperature right around 50 degrees, even if it was a bit humid.”
We don’t know this runner’s name, but she says: “The weather here is ideal for a marathon, I think you would have a hard time beating it. I would definitely say to try this marathon at some point. Train in the hot summer, then race in the cool weather. Tour Iceland as well while you are here.”
Allegra Hollingbury writes: “That was Fucking Awesome!! I really enjoyed the profile of the course. It was rolling hills with nothing too steep and no extreme downhills.”
