Regarding the race
WOW Cyclothon is the largest and longest road race in Iceland. Held annually during the month of June, the cyclothon takes riders for a 1358 km tour around Iceland which has to be completed in a maximum of 72 hours. During this time-period, nothing will hold back the participants who will be riding relentlessly until they reach the finish line.
The race presents a unique sporting event that combines nature, unity, persistence and teamwork in a quite grandiose setting.
WOW Cyclotron has three main categories, A-category (4 person team relay), B-category (10 person team relay) and an individual category. To top it off, the race holds a higher goal, being a fundraising event supporting a different charity every year. That being said, it will be an experience that is going to be far from ordinary and we can’t wait!
