Since 2012 Mt. Esja Ultra has become one of Iceland’s most popular mountain trail race. The Esja mountain range is just 25 minutes from Reykjavik city by car and is a favorite training spot among Icelandic trail and mountain runners living in the capital area.
We are proud to announce that we will offer a new additional race course in 2015, the Mt. Esja Marathon, a 42,2 km course with very few repetition and lots of stunning views of the mountain range and the capital area. The Mt. Esja Marathon will be limited to 100 participants.
