Mt. Esja Marathon

Mt. Esja Marathon 4th edition 9th of June 2018

The Mt. Esja marathon is the only mountain marathon held in Iceland. The distance will be measured approximately 45 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.

The course will be marked but runners have to download the GPX file and upload to a GPS watch or device
