Iceland Express Travel, sister company of Iceland Express, has launched two new running packages for travellers who want to experience the sporty side of Iceland and learn how to train more effectively using the Smart Motion Running technique.
The tours offer training and coaching techniques for beginners, recreational runners and elite runners. Across the workshops runners will discover how to run minimising the stress on joints and the spine, maximise energy consumption, avoid injury and achieve a natural running style.
The first workshop runs from September 23-26 and offers two- or three-night options including two running workshops from £622 per couple. Prices are based on two sharing a double room for two nights and include breakfast, transfers and a trip to the Blue Lagoon on the departure day.
The second package starts on December 29 until January 2 and combines the Icelandic Old Year Run which is an annual running event occurring on the last day of the year and is the Icelandic way of wishing the old year ‘goodbye’.
Prices start from £748 per couple based on two sharing a double room for three nights, including breakfast, transfers and a trip to the Blue Lagoon. Runners will take a daily workshop before the Old Year Run on December 31 and see in the New Year in Reykjavik.
Flights from Gatwick to Reykjavik are available with Iceland Express from £89 one-way including taxes.
