Register to run

Join 150 adventurers to take on this unique Challenge with 2 marathon style treks in 2 Days with wilderness camping. Stunning landscape along the famous Laugavegurinn Trail with varied terrain and a real sense of achievement as walkers cross the finish line and celebrate. 

You'll encounter mountains of every colour, spectacular glaciers, roaring hot springs, and river crossings to navigate that will test stamina and adaptability as it's a tough trek each day with some big hills! You'll be fully supported by an 'Action Challenge' team from the start, with a pre-challenge briefing, a Spring training walk, help organising flights and logistics, guiding you on the trek, and campsite hospitality. Push yourself - and sign up for an amazing adventure that you'll never forget. This event will take place from 27-30 August 2017.
