Free fall marathon
Dead Sea Ultramarathon,
April 20 2013
Every marathon event has its own special character. Those claiming to be the toughest, the most beautiful, the most challenging or the most scenic are subject to personal opinion, and most often the opinion of passionately committed race directors. But no one can deny that the polar marathon is the most northern. The Dead Sea Ultramarathon falls into a similarly unequivocal category. It is the race that reaches the lowest point on Earth.

Maraton de Santiago,

Chile, the lone star flag of South America, has added another attraction to its great diversity of natural landscapes.

Running into history
Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon
From humble beginnings 30 years ago, the Reykjavík Marathon has grown to become a major harvest festival for runners in Iceland and a hotspot for athletes from abroad. It started out as a bit of a tourism stunt. “At the travel agency Úrval, where I was working at the time, we were looking for ways to attract foreign tourists to the country,” reveals Knútur Óskarsson, one of the founders of the Reykjavík Marathon. “Originally I tried to establish a Nordic ski marathon called Lava Loppet in 1981–82 but those plans went up in the air.”
