Fun Stations

Participants will be running past Fun Stations where lights and music will play a big role.

Hallgrímskirkja church

Hallgrimskirkja church is one of the main landmarks in Reykjavik. Imagine you are walking into another dimension when entering the church, experience the music and lights in a perfect unity in this magnificent building and just take it all in. Hallgrímskirkja church is the only part of the course where participants are not allowed to run.

Reykjavik Art Museum

Participants will run or walk into the Reykjavik Art Museum in Tryggvagata. Through the rhythmic music and lights participants ditch their inhibitions and enjoy their own electric runway. The run finishes inside the Museum with music and lights.

Reykjavik's City Hall

The City Hall will be decorated with colourful lights and music will be playing as participants run through the building. The City Hall is located by Tjörnin, which translates to simply, The Pond.

Harpa Concert Hall

Our beautiful concert hall, Harpa, will be lit up to celebrate this day, so prepare your mind for a mesmerising sight.
