Is this the marathon for me?

The MoonWalk Iceland celebrates its 7th year; taking place at night... but will be light as it’s during the summer solstice. Walking in this spectacular wilderness is all about self-motivation and determination, as your biggest supporter is the wildlife. This Marathon is ideal for anybody that has taken on London or Scotland and now wants the next MoonWalk challenge, or you just fancy a very special challenge. You should aim for a sustained walking pace of 14-minute miles, with a max finishing time of 10 hours. As always, it is open to girls and guys!
