Icelandic midnight sun run

On Friday, a friend and I travelled to Iceland to run the midnight sun half marathon. it was an undulating, pretty route passing glacial streams and waterfalls, and I'm sure at the top of the hills, had it not been raining, we would have seen magnificent views across the sea to the snow capped mountains. I hobbled round due to injury and limped in at 2 hours and 4 mins, after being up for nearly 22 hours! However it was a surreal experience, and we did glimpse the midnight sun through the rain clouds as we walked home - and it got us to Iceland which is the most amazing and spectacular country - which was witnessed the next day in glorious sunshine ☀️

That sounds fab. I love seeing new places when running and Iceland is beautiful. Did you recover at the Blue Lagoon?

Re: Icelandic midnight sun run

Rain, snow, cloud, ice??? You are not selling this to me! 2 hours sounds like a pretty good time to me in those conditions - I'd have been in a right sulk!

Re: Icelandic midnight sun run

Well done Caroline - glad you enjoyed Iceland.

Michelle, we prepared, and recovered in hot pools - I have never been so clean!

Re: Icelandic midnight sun run
