Midnight Run in Iceland to end with Fireworks

For those suffering from marathon withdrawal after Sunday’s London Marathon, Iceland has the perfect cure. Offering three races catering to different types of runners, Iceland and its clean air is a runner’s paradise. Kicking off the running season is the Midnight Run on 23rd June geared towards runners of all abilities with 3km, 5km, and 10km distances. The race takes place under the midnight sun and participants are invited to unwind following the race in the Laugardalslaug swimming pool and hot spots. Next up is the grueling Laugavegur Ultra Marathon on 18th July, a race on a famous hiking route, Laugavegur, that travels between two of Iceland’s most scenic areas, Landmannalaugar and Thórsmörk. While registration for the 2009 rate is closed, due to its dramatic setting and difficulty, this is an amazing race to watch. And wrapping up the season is the Reykjavik Marathon on 22nd August, which coincides with Reykjavik Culture Night. The marathon draws thousands and traverses much of the city, including scenic North Atlantic coastline. The race culminates with Reykjavik Culture Night, a city-wide celebration featuring musical performances, street entertainers, and fireworks.
