Set near Lake Mývatn, at the divergent boundaries of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, the Iceland Volcano Marathon route will be run directly in the North Volcanic Zone.
It’s a hot bed of geothermal activity with geysers, hot springs, and lava rock!
With the massive Hverfjall crater as the focus of the route, runners will pass through soft, black volcanic sand the route traverses single-track trail, plains of lava rock, and several minor volcano craters.
Whether you're up for the full marathon, half marathon, or quarter marathon, there's a challenge waiting for you. Join us for an unparalleled adventure that seamlessly blends your love for running with a profound immersion in nature. Mark your calendars and start the countdown until you find yourself amidst the surreal landscapes of Iceland.

NB. The North Volcanic Zone is approximately 7 hours away from the current volcanic activity in the south west of Iceland. The Hverfjall Crater is an extinct volcano and is no danger to participants. Our sincerest thoughts go to the inhabitants of Grindavík who have had to evacuate due to the current volcanic eruption in Sundhnúkagígaröð.
