Glitnir Reykjavik Marathon & Half Marathon
Reykjavik, Iceland



August 23, 2008

Event Details

The race will start and finish in Lækjargata, the center of Reykjavik where the race will finish as well. The Marathon and the Half Marathon are one lap (except for the last part of the marathon, as it goes nearly the same route as in the beginning of the race). The course is about 60% flat and 40% rolling.

Runners in the half marathon who expect to finish the race in more than 3 hours are expected to start at 9:00 AM, at the same time as the marathon main start.

Race Weather & Climate

Iceland enjoys a much milder climate than its name and location adjacent to the Arctic circle would imply. The average temperature in Reykjavik for this time of the year is about 54°F to 57ºF
