Harpa Concert Hall

Our beautiful concert hall, Harpa, will be lit up to celebrate this day, so prepare your mind for a mesmerising sight.

Hallgrímskirkja church

Hallgrimskirkja church is one of the main landmarks in Reykjavik. Imagine you are walking into another dimension when entering the church, experience the music and lights in a perfect unity in this magnificent building and just take it all in. Hallgrímskirkja church is the only part of the course where participants are not allowed to run.


When passing Hljómskálinn, lights will be all around and reflect in the water you will be running along. The small water we call Tjörnin , which translates to simply, The Pond.

Reykjavik's City Hall

The City Hall will be decorated with colourful lights and music will be playing as participants run through the building. The City Hall is located by Tjörnin.
