Worldloppet races

Island Marathon | 2021

Important Information about the Fossavatn marathon

The Fossavatn marathon is the last Nordic race to be added to the Worldloppet family of races. And this competition is a good way to close the racing season with a 50-km classic ski race just above the spectacular views of the fjords. All of this takes place at the end of April, a time when it is pretty unusual to find any good Nordic ski courses in Europe. In addition to being able to participate in a Worldloppet race, this is a time to discover unique landscapes that are unknown to most people.

Registration for the races

  • The cost of registering for the 50 km classic race of Saturday: Euro 100,- / ca. CHF 120,-
  • The cost of registering for the 25 km classic race or skating race : Euro 60,- / ca. CHF 70,-

Please register for the races directly; therefore you will receive all information from the organizing committee first hand.

Important Backpack for the Fossavatn Marathon

Each participant registered for the 25 and 50 km classic distances must carry with them - for safety reasons and as in the Birkebeiner in Norway - a small backpack of 1.5 kg and contain at least: a windproof jacket and an on-pants suit, a beanie and a pair of gloves for cold weather conditions.
