One of the world's most pristine natural landscapes beckons you at this wildly popular new half-distance triathlon. We offer guaranteed race entry at Early Bird pricing, plus a comprehensive 5-night tour to help you shake up an ordinary race schedule with a true "race-cation" in 2017!


BREAK from the ordinary with our 5-Night Tour and optional Race Entry

This is the ideal way to race in Iceland! Enjoy the support of our experienced staff as RaceQuest ensures you are well looked after from the moment you arrive in Reykjavik. As professional triathlete and 2016 Challenge Iceland Champion, Kevin Collington, described this course, it's filled with "other-worldly scenery." This is a half-distance race that can be done as an individual, or as a relay team sharing the 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run.

Our 5-night race week tour is comprehensive and value-packed for every triathlete. We greet you at Reykjavik airport on Thursday, July 20 and transport you to a beautiful apartment that includes your own kitchen. It's in the heart of so much to see and do in Reykjavik. We assist you with race check-in, take you on a private tour of the race course, and provide transportation to all official race activities. After the race on Sunday, we help with bike and bag retrieval, shuttle back to our hotel, and take you to the famous geo-thermal pools of the Blue Lagoon on Monday. Tuesday we offer transport to the airport, or arrange further tours for you in Iceland.
