Registration for the 2019 Laugavegur Ultra Marathon that takes place on Saturday, July 13th is now open here at marathon.is. Registration closes latest on June 30th but sooner if the race is fully booked. In 2018 the race was fully booked in less than four weeks after it started so we recommend that runners register sooner than later.
Runners that have not completed the Laugavegur Ultra Marathon before should read the article “Is this race for you?”. There you can find information about the recommended running background, time limits etc. Good preparation is crucial for this challenging 55 k mountain course that takes place in the highlands of Iceland.
Runners should notice that the time limits have changed since last year. Participants have to finish the race in 9 hours and 15 minutes and leave the check-in point at Álftavatn (22 km) no later than 4 hours after they start the race and the check-in point at Emstur (38 km) no later than 6 hours and 30 minutes after the start of the race. It will also be mandatory this year to run with your own cup or bottle, whistle and a rescue blanket. Please read carefully about this in the article "Is this race for you?".
