The Icelandic runner community has been hit hard by the Covid 19 virus. Although many mid summer events were held, basically all spring events and late summer events have been cancelled or postponed. Iceland’s biggest event Reykjavik marathon was cancelled and also other big and small such as Iceland Midnight Run, Súlur Vertical Trail Run, Fossvogshlaupið Race, Multipeak Trail Run and many other.
Some events have not been cancelled yet, such as the Westamn Island Race (5th September), Volcano Trail (12th of September), Eldslóðin Nature Trail (27th of September) and Reykjavik Autumn marathon 24th of October. Icelandic runners keep their fingers crossed and hope the best just like runners all over the world.
