Turning a New Leaf

EMBOLDEN YOUR HEART

Chin up and feet forward! You're looking for change or at least a week to turn your back on whatever you left behind. Escape, refresh, and leave with a new perspective.

Our trail runs will take you into the countryside, where you'll feel like part of the iconic landscapes that drew us here. We'll have crew on course to mind you, markings to guide you, and finish line food to revive you.

You can take these runs at your own pace - or go for gold! At the end of the week everyone earns a Global Adventures finisher medal, plus special awards for our fastest racers.

RUN DIFFICULTY & TRAINING

In Iceland, each day we’ll be running/hiking between 4-11.5km (3-7mi). Most of these runs will have a decent amount of elevation gain. Keep in mind - weather in Iceland can be unpredictably wet. It is not uncommon for us to walk the uphill portions and run when the terrain is flat or downhill. If you want to train, we recommend working up to back-to-back trail runs with varied elevation gain.

We ask runners to maintain at least a 20-minute pace on these trail runs.
