This is a special year in Iceland—it’s the 100th Anniversary of women getting the right to vote. To honor women’s breakthroughs, Kathrine has been invited by Islandsbanki, the national bank of Iceland and race sponsor as a speaker with some of Iceland’s women role models and leaders at a special forum entitled “Equal Rights Is a Marathon!” to be held at the Harpa Concert Hall (Aug.20) and then as a guest of the Reykjavik, Marathon, (Aug. 22) the country’s biggest running event and city festival. The races go on all day, followed by Culture Night, one of the most popular festivals in Iceland and the city’s greatest celebration, which draws people from around the world. Iceland is an ecological wonderland, and Reykjavik has been dubbed one of the ‘coolest’ cities in the world.

Bellin Women’s Half Marathon, Green Bay, WI United States
Kathrine enjoys being a part of inaugural events, and this first women’s race is already fated for success as it is produced by Bellin Health, the company that has already proved themselves by organizing the 18,000 strong annual Bellin Race every June. Kathrine will be at the expo all day Friday to meet, greet and sign her books, and will be the keynote speaker at 6 PM that evening for the Women’s Inspiration Dinner, which is 4-8 PM at the KI Convention Center Ballroom. She’ll help start the race on Saturday and be there to welcome finishers!
