Ways to Enter

Like all Albatros Adventure Marathons™, Iceland Volcano Marathon is designed to be more than just a race. We want you to be able to run in spectacular places, surrounded by good people, and exposed to new cultural experiences. It’s not just about the race – it’s about enjoying time together with family, friends, and other running-minded spirits while exploring the world. Spectators welcome!

In order to register for the race, you MUST enter with one of the following options: 


International Participants

For international participants, race entry is only possible in conjunction with a multi-day tour package. The packages include all the ingredients for a fantastic getaway: accommodation, social events, sightseeing, and select meals and transportation per the itinerary. Packages also generally include ample amounts of free time, during which you can choose to join organized excursions or explore the region at your own pace. 

In one of Earth’s geological hotspots, you can bask in hot springs, board a whale safari, and participate in the most exciting marathon of your life directly on the North Volcanic Zone. Amid lava fields and geysers, enjoy the seemingly endless nights of a Nordic summer and run the Iceland Volcano Marathon!
