The Icelandic Ultra runner who went running in the desert

Elísabet Margeirsdóttir didn’t set out to run the 400 km (250 miles) by-invitation-only Ultra Gobi when she started running fifteen years ago. But a string of successes led to her being an entrant in the 2018 race where she became the first ever woman to finish the grueling desert run in sub zero temperatures. 

Setting up your outfit is a pastime in itself

“You'll progress far better in spring and summer if you keep running throughout the winter. Once you have the proper gear you can start to enjoy running in extreme weather.

With time it actually becomes part of the appeal, challenging your body and bracing the elements simultaneously. And adding to your outfit becomes a pastime in itself. You need to learn to fit your clothes to whatever is happening in the weather.”

Learn to enjoy extreme weather

“It took me quite a while to actually enjoy running in any weather. To feel ready to get out there, in the dark and the cold. You have to learn that you can fully dress the chill and wind off.

The weather always looks worse through the window than it actually feels once you’re out there.”
