Participants close to the finish line in Lækjargata

Information for people with disabilities


    When registering for the race, those participating in a wheelchair just sign up the same way as everyone else. To read more about registration click here!

    Accompanying persons

    People with disabilities participating in the Íslandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon may, if they so wish, be accompanied by one person without any extra charge. Accompanying persons will be given special bibs authorising them to be on the race course but will neither be timed nor receive any other race material. The accompanying person will be able to pick up a specially marked bib at the resolution desk operated during the Expo.

    Race course

    All those participating in the Íslandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon do so at their own responsibility. The race course is not completely closed for traffic so it is very important to exercise caution. We would also like to draw attention to the fact that certain sections of the course can be difficult to navigate in a wheelchair. Examples of this include speed bumps as well as rough or uneven surfaces, which can be treacherous. For security reasons, those participating in a wheelchair or using other assistive equipment must line up behind other participants at the start of the race.


    All participants will receive a medal when they cross the finish line in the Íslandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon and their time will show in the results of the race if they took part in one of the timed distances.

    Wheelchair participants are not eligible to win a prize for placing in the top three in the main race.
