Event descriptionThis will be the 2nd ICE-O and the second competition in Icelandic orienteering history. The event is a three days event, including sprint on the first day, long/classic distance second day and middle distance the final day. We are proud to present our local forests which are located all around Reykjavik. The forest can offer you pure Icelandic nature with green and colorful areas in an old lava field. This Area is called Hei­m÷rk and is it will be used for Saturday. The Sunday run will be close to ReykjavÝk centar in popular city park, ÍskjuhlÝ­ . The sprint will take place in the center of Hafnarfj÷r­ur. This will be the first time this map is taken in use.
