Every year there‘s a big event called „The Reykjavik Marathon“ and this year it will take place on August 20th.

Individuals can choose how far they run. There‘s a kid‘s marathon, 3 K Fun Run, 10 K Race, a half marathon and a full marathon of 42 K.  Runners can choose to support a charity and people then sponsor them for their run and the money goes to the charity.

This year 168 charities are registered and over 35 million ISK have been raised at the time of writing and this number will increase greatly by the time the event takes place. ABC Children‘s Aid is among those charities and already a number of people have signed up to sponsor us.


Below is a link to the charities registered and there it‘s possible to sponsor a runner and therefore donate to the charity of your choosing. It‘s all in Icelandic but it‘s easy to navigate and ABC Children‘s Aid (called ABC barnahjálp) is the first charity listed.
