On Reykajvík runs website, www.reykjavikruns.us, runners and others can explore 21 places on the marathon route through various different types of media, including a partly animated clip showing the former Mayor of Reykjavik Jon Gnarr repeatedly firing a starting pistol in his office. Elsewhere, users find archive photos and films from areas where they’ll be running, animated gifs, music performances, as well as hidden gems located throughout Reykjavik as described by the locals. In the run up to the Marathon more and more places are added to the project’s website. Visitors can also participate in the initiative on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr.com and other social media.
