Reykjavik for environment

Ecotrail Reykjavik is a race in the trails from Grindavik to Reykjavik and in the heart of the Icelandic capital.

The participants will have the chance to explore different kind of trails with great views in the nature from Grindavik, the Blue lagoon through amazing trails to and in Reykjavik.

The Ecotrail-concept focuses on environmental awareness in mass events. Ecotrail Reykjavik implements a strict environmental policy and promotes a “leave no trace” behavior through its participants. One example is that the runners have to carry a tiny, designed bag to keep trash during the race and they will also have to bring their own cup to pour water with. This is contrary to what we often see in regular races and marathons where thousands of cups and paper from the runners are floating in the streets.
