Reykjavik Half Marathon

24/08/2016

I travelled to Iceland this weekend to take part in this race.

The marathon, half marathon, and 10k took place on the same day, which coincided with a cultural day in Reykjavik, so there was a fabulous party atmosphere everywhere and 15000 runners filled the city.The route started out in the city centre and went through a residential area where Icelanders lined the streets, banging saucepans and tambourines as the runners passed, before heading out along the sea front, with beautiful views to distract us from our weary legs.It was a lovely sunny day with minimal breeze, and the course was largely flat.I felt good for the first 9-10 miles and was comfortably under 7 minute mile pace, but began to tire a little at the end, and finished in 92,19; this was still within my target time and I was delighted  to find I was 6th lady out of 1261 women (2nd F40 after the race winner!).Afterwards I enjoyed strolling round Reykjavik in the sunshine, drinking wine and listening to live music on every street corner.It was a weekend to remember and I would recommend this race to anyone looking for an international event and a beautiful city to explore.
