Description:

22 km trail run across Snæfellsnes peninsula. The race starts at the idyllic village Arnarstapi and ends in Olafsvik. The course mainly follows an old gravel road next to the mystical Snæfellsjökull glacier, also an active volcano. The first 9km or so are uphill, until you are up to around 700m height. The road has different variations of steepness, so in between steep hills runners get short (very short!) breaks from the climb. Conditions of the route vary from year to year, for example one year runners had to run in deep snow for 5 km. The glacier Snæfellsjökull dominates the landscape and the area is one of Iceland’s most popular tourist attractions. Arnarstapi is located 190 km from Reykjavik.
