The Kid´s Marathon takes place in Hljómskálagarður garden on Saturday, August 19th, 2017. The Kid´s Marathon is for children around 8 years old and younger but kids up to 10 years old are welcome to join the race. The 3 km Fun Run is probably more suitable for children over 8 years old. Parents can run with their children in the kid´s marathon but they are not registered.

Children that are 5 years old or younger will run around 500 m but 6-8 years old will run 1-1,5 km.
