To visit the Faroes Islands and take part in the Torshavn marathon provided such an opportunity. Travelling to such places, is not always about the running, it does however provide the excuse to go, and go at a specific time.
In the Faroe Islands the summer months are cool and well suited for marathon running. On the 19th July 2003 the starting shot was fired for the first Atlantic Airways Torshavn Marathon. In perfect conditions: calm, partially misty and 13 degrees Celsius about 200 participants set out from the city centre
