Join Eldslóðin

Eldslóðin is an off-road race in the beautiful and magnificent nature of Iceland, near the city limits.

The run is from Vífilsstaðavatn, into Búrfellsgjá, up to Helgafell and back to Vífilsstaðir.

The race track is designed so that the track is a challenge for the advanced but at the same time beautiful and rich, with a smaller ascent than is the case in the big off-road races. Two shorter competition tracks are also planned, with the aim that at the beginning of the summer this can be a fun race where beginners and more advanced can have a great day together in Heiðmörk.

You can run 5km, 9km and 28km. There is also a team competition which is divided so that four competitors run the 28 km lap and their combined time in the team competition is valid, but of course their time also works as individual time.

As in all other Viking tournaments, emphasis will be placed on safety, framework and joy.
