Interesting stuff

The 2014 Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon is near by. Below is interesting stuff runners in the timed distances might want to know about.

SMS

Shortly after you cross the finish line on Saturday we will send an SMS to your registered mobile number. The text message will contain your unconfirmed chip time. Confirmed results will be published on marathon.is no later than at 16:00 on the day of the race. Please log in to “Your Page” here on marathon.is to see if your mobile number is registered. Notice that you can only register one mobile number. It does not have to be your number, it can also be the number of a friend or a family member who waits excited on the sidelines. In the case of mobile numbers that are registered abroad then it needs to be registered as if you were calling the number from a different country, for an example 004545264526. To log in to “Your Page” you use the username and password that you received via email when you registered for the race. Here you can get a new password sent to your registered email address. Notice that “Your Page” will close at 13:00, Thursday August 21st, but you can also register your mobile number at the race number pick up in Laugardalshöll sports hall.
