Terrain

On Friday, the middle distance will take place in Rauðvatn at the Capital’s suburb. Rauðavatn is a technical area at the edge of town. Many hills (HD 70 m), many paths and a lot of rocky details (cliffs, boulders, bare rock). 50 % open terrain with very good runnability, 50 % forested area (mainly dense pine forest) and in some slopes thick lupina areas. And from almost every corner of the map you can see Mount Esjan, Reykjavik and the sea just below you.

On Saturday and Sunday, the middle distance event will take place in Vífilsstaðahlíð, a mix of forest and shrubland on the edge of the Capital. Small thick forest, some open terrain, steep hills and a lot of variation make this area exciting for runners as well as tricky to navigate. The map covers part of the lava field Búrfellshraun where you can find numerous volcanic formations including ahah lava, pahoe lava, lava channel and caves. The lava erupted around 8 000 years ago from the crater Búrfell which is a popular recreational area for people from the capital area.
