The Fire + Ice Ultra Marathon in Iceland is over for another year, but what an amazing race it was! Race participants have 6 days to go through the stunning landscapes of Iceland running around bubbling hot pools, volcanic terrain, crossing glacial rivers, lava fields, and relax in hot springs along the way. Not to mention you might get a view of the northern lights! While extremely tough as participants must be completely self-reliant, it is very rewarding when you reach the end.
These are some of the images from the official race photographer Bjorn Gunnlaugsson who did a fantastic job capturing the race and participants.
There are only a limited number of places left for 2017, but places for 2018 are now open here. We are proud to be a sponsor of the race and look forward to next years challenge!
