Half Marathon

Every year on the first Saturday of September, hundreds of people participate in the Faroe Islands’ most beautiful half marathon.

The unique running competition takes place on the island of Vágar. Beginning in the picturesque village Gásadalur, participants run through all the villages on Vágar with the finishing line by the church in the village Sandavágur.

For tourists who like running, this is the ideal event. Not only would you get to participate in a race, but you would also get to see many of the islands’ most magnificent views whilst doing so.

The Faroe Islands’ most beautiful half marathon is organised by Frælsi Athletic Club on Vágar island.

Contact Visit Vágar for enquiries and bookings.
