Mt. Esja Marathon

Mt. Esja Marathon 3rd edition 18th of June 2017

The Mt. Esja marathon will be the first mountain marathon held in Iceland. The distance will be measured approximately 42 km with the total elevation gain of 3500 m. The course is designed with as few repetitions as possible so there will be a lot of new views of the mountains around and the city of Reykjavik.

It is a very demanding and technical course for either competitive trail runners or experienced fast hikers.

The race starts at 8:00 am at Esjustofa.
