Run the toughest mountain and skyrunning race in Iceland!

About Mt. Esja Ultra

Dramatically dominating the Reykjavík City skyline and providing a stunning backdrop to the capital area is the impressive Mount Esja, a popular destination for day-trippers and riddled with well-worn hiking trails. Once surmounted, the view from the top of this 914-metre high mountain is breathtaking.


The race Mt. Esja Ultra has been held since 2012 and the tenth edition of Mt. Esja Ultra® will start on the 19th of June 2021. 


We encourage all brave trail runners to register for one of the amazing races we offer and enjoy a demanding course with extraordinary mountain views.
