“Last year (2008) there were about 5,000 runners and about 12,000 people in the area, but we expect more this year,” says Gunnar Helgason, actor and entertainment program manager, about the LazyTown race.

“Now Magnús Scheving is going to do a special warm-up for all the kids, in which about 15,000 people will probably participate. The kids then go to their goal and are divided into three age groups by color. Maggi then runs the first few meters with each group, where the group leaders are going to be in the front and lead the runners the right way,” explains Gunnar and says that there is more atmosphere around the race itself this year than before.
“After the race, there will be a LazyTown concert in Hljómskálagard, on the same stage as the Rásar 2 concert that evening, and there will be a giant screen at the venue so everyone can see what’s going on. “Stephanie is going to invite her friends to come and sing LazyTown songs along with her own songs. Jónsi, who sings the opening song in the show, Jóhanna Guðrún, Magni Ásgeirsson and Ingó Veðurguð will perform too,” he says. “This year we are going to try to shorten the time people have to be there, but overall it will be about an hour and a half program with warm-up, the race and entertainment,” he adds.
