The readers of hlaup.is, the main website for the Icelandic running community, have voted for the best races of last year.
The Mt. Esja Ultra and Marathon was number one in the trail race category, and in the street race category the Fossvogur 5K & 10K race came first.
What both of those races have in common is that they are run on some of the most popular running trails and paths in the country.
Every runner in Reykjavik loves running in Fossvogur and Mt. Esja is probably the most popular hike in Iceland.
The nr. 2 trail race of 2015 is the Pentecost Trail Race and nr 3 the Laugavegur Ultra.
The nr.2 street race of 2015 is the Westman Islands race and nr 3 the Color Run,
