The Lazy Town Run is for children 8 years old and younger. Parents can run with their children but are not registered. The run will take place in Hljomskalagardur.
Online registration for the 2015 Lazy Town Run starts on January 9th and will end at noon on Thursday August 20st 2015. After online registration finishes it will be possible for parents to register their children at the EXPO in Laugardalsholl.
Runners are divided into two age groups:
YELLOW route is for two to five years old and they run 550 m
BLUE route is for six to eight years old and they run 1,3 km
Everybody who have strollers and prams should be in the back of each start group. It is preferable that a grown up goes along with children at the age of 6 and younger. Brothers and sisters can run together a suitable distance.
The entry fee for the 2015 LazyTown Run can be found here.
Included in the registration fee is amongst other things a LazyTown t-shirt that will be handed out along with the registration package at the EXPO in Laugardalshöll.
Along with the registration package all the children get a card to pin at the front of their t-shirt with needles which are also included. The color of the card indicates which route the child runs (depends on the age of the child). The children can write their name, their favorite number or draw a picture on the card.
All participants must wear the LazyTown t-shirt to get a medal when finishing the run. Parents can run with their children but are not registered and do not pay an entry fee.
A family discount is given if a parent/guardian runs in the Islandsbanki Reykjavik Marathon and two or more children. For further information click here.
At the starting point there will be specific areas for each start group. Please follow the instructions of the staff on where you can take your place.
At the finishing line it will be very crowded and therefore it is important that guardians who don’t run along with their children wait by the end of the finishing area but do not enter the area itself. By the finishing line there will be a tent where children who can’t find their parents wait.
Please save photography for until you have left the finishing area.
During the run it can be expected that there will be between 8 and 12 thousand people in the area.
To prevent children and parents from loosing track of each other in this huge crowd parents are asked to sign their child’s wristband (which every contestant gets assigned with their registration package) and decide with them a place to meet up. In an information tent close to the stage it will be possible to search for children who have separated from their people.
Parking spaces are by the University of Iceland and from there it is easy to get to Hljomskalagardur by taking the walkway bridge by Njardargata. Then it is also ideal to take a bus.
