I first traveled to Bhutan to run the Thunder Dragon Marathon last year. I enjoyed the race and unique Himalayan Kingdom travel experience so much that I brought clients with me this year. I was happy to see the following client comments echoed my first impressions from a year ago.
– Loved the course….it was difficult but so so so enjoyable….the scenery was spectacular… the single track was FUN! Course markings were excellent, rest stops plentiful
– Well supported ESPECIALLY for such a small run, and great hat and shirts.
– Many volunteers along the course and aid stations at the right locations.
– The pre-race Buddhist blessing, the local runner’s enthusiasm and the scenery all combined to create a very spiritual experience.
– Terrific job sharing photos

The course was a very scenic combination of downtown Reykjavik, residential neighbourhoods, city parks, rivers and the seaside. While light on fan support, the running trails portions along the seaside and the country’s most popular salmon river provided spectacular views of the ocean, mountains and a few glaciers. The start / finish in downtown Reykjavik had a lot of fan support and was conveniently just a block or two away from the majority of the hotels. Beautiful course, people and country!

A bonus is the race being held in conjunction with Culture Night, an event that takes place all across central Reykjavik, with celebrations in the streets and squares, in museums, businesses and residential gardens! Reykjavik Culture Night marks the start of the city’s cultural year, when museums and theatres and other cultural institutions launch their annual programs of events. The main objective of Reykjavik Culture Night is to deliver a diverse and rich offering of cultural events from 1-11pm, ending with a magnificent firework show by the harbour. All events are free of charge for everyone to enjoy.

Before and after race day I enjoyed exploring Iceland’s natural wonders (including a post-race soak in the Blue Lagoon) with a great group of people that had booked with Marathon Tours.
