Laugavegur Ultra Marathon will not be canceled

Runners registered for the LAUGAVEGUR ULTRA MARATHON are probably now wondering if the volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajokull glacier will have any effect on the race this summer. The race is almost 2 months from now and we have no plans to cancel the race. Today we are confident that this will be over soon but if not we will have plan B ready. Further information about how this will develop will be published here on the website.

Although the volcano is spreading ash around the world day-to-day life in Iceland is just as usual. The volcanic eruption in Eyjafjallajökull glacier on the south coast of Iceland has made an impact in a specified area, in other parts of the country Icelanders' daily life is proceeding quite normally.
