Reykjavík Marathon - August. The marathon is a two-lap race. The half marathon is accordingly one lap. The course goes westward out of the city center for about 3 km and then turns eastward along the seashore with a beautiful view of the mountains north of Reykjavík. After about 15 km, the course turns again west towards the city center, completing the loop. The course is 60% flat and 40% rolling and has been certified by Mr. John Disley, an official AIMS measurer. The total difference in altitude is only about 20 meters. Every 5 km will be clearly marked.
