Birkir Már, General Manager, PT, Running guide
Running has been a way of life for Birkir since childhood. Enjoying the ride is a priority to him. Which is why running in scenic pearls of nature is by far his favorite type of running
Before discovering trail running, Birkir used to race regularly in road races. Even though competing is not his focus, Birkir still likes to participate in various running events, mostly ultras. He has done the Vibram Hong Kong 100, Laugavegur Ultra (55 km) and Hengill Ultra (50 miles) with good results.
Probably the country´s only male who has more shoes than his wife, Birkir is slightly obsessed with running shoes. He is a physical therapist and holds lectures on running shoes, running form and injury prevention. He is happy to discuss these and give advice if asked.
Birkir loves to meet new people, travel, try different kinds of food and spend time with family and friends. In addition to Icelandic, he speaks excellent English and Swedish.
