Event descriptionThe 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 Heiğmörk and is it will be used for Saturday. The Sunday run will be close to Reykjavík centar in popular city park, Öskjuhlíğ . The sprint will take place in the center of Hafnarfjörğur. This will be the first time this map is taken in use.
Terrain descriptionFriday sprint race will be held in the town of Hafnafjörğur, which is one of the oldest Icelandic towns. Built in a lava field, its numerous parks will surprise you with a complex terrain full of rocks, re-entrants and knolls. On Saturday, the long distance event will take place in Heiğmörk forrest on the Capital’s suburb. Thick forests, small marshes, vast open areas and bare rocks as well as lava fiels on the map margins make this area exciting for runners as well as tricky to navigate. Sunday middle distance courses will be set in Elliğaárdalur valley. Located right in the City of Reykjavík, this area will surprised you by the orienteering possibilities. Two streams, plentiful marshes, beautiful waterfall make the courses especially entertaining.
