Iceland Ultra – July 2008

Posted on June 13, 2008 by



ICELAND LAUGAVEGUR ULTRA MARATHON.

ENTRY FOR 2008 IS NOW CLOSED. 2009 DETAILS WILL BE UP AND RUNNING AFTER THE 2008 EVENT IN JULY.

The “Laugavegur” course is one of the most beautiful in Iceland, stretching from Landmannalaugar in the highlands to Thorsmork, a natural reservation area. The area is famous for the yellow, orange and purple hues of the surrounding mountains.

The race blazes a trail through moss fields, meadows of wool grass, steam springs, and bizarre lava formations, where various blossoms defy the raw climate.

The race ends at Thorsmork, described as Iceland’s brightest pearl, surrounded by rugged mountains and beautiful glaciers.

Sales Manager and Ultra marathon runner Steve Clark has recently returned from completing the marathon. Read about how he got on here.
