5VH Trail Run

Fimmvörðuhálshlaupið verður haldið í fjórða skiptið laugardaginn 10. ágúst 2024. Leiðin liggur frá Skógum að Volcano Huts í Húsadal, Þórsmörk. Leiðin er um 28 km með um 1500m hækkun og álíka mikilli lækkun.

The Run fer fram á háldendinu

Approximately 10km of the running route is over 800m above sea level. It is much colder on that part of the route and sometimes it can be blustery on the ridge, but the weather is nicer down below. This should not be underestimated and we ask the contestants to be prepared for anything.
Kattahryggur

Cat Ridge

The path goes down Kattarhryggur just above Þórsmörk. This is a solid path and always at least one meter wide. There is no deficit involved. The view is wonderful and for most people it is great fun to run the Kattarhryggur, as they are a famous part of the Fimmvörðuháls route.

However, it is quite steep on both sides and the competitors have to show extra care and caution on this section. It is not allowed to overtake in this area and it should be kept in mind that some people may be afraid of the air in these conditions.

Race Route from Skógar to Volcano HUTS

Með því að smella á flugvélina á myndinni til hliðar, má sjá leiðina í þrívídd. Við mælum með að hafa gps leiðina í úrinu en athugið að hún er aðeins til viðmununar. Ætið skal fara eftir merkingum og við ábyrgjumst ekki að keppnisleiðin verði nákvæmlega eins og gps leiðin. You can download the route on Garmin or download the file below.

About The Route

The hiking route of Fimmvörðuháls is one of the most beautiful and popular route in Iceland. It´s also a popular trail running route. And no wonder since it displays incredable variety and showcases much of the best Iceland has to offer. The race starts by the majestic waterfall: Skógarfoss. You will climb dirt trails parallel to the river and see countless waterfalls in the process. Once you have reached 1000 m elevation, you will rach the first aid station at Baldvinsskáli. The you´ll run on the glacier of Eyjafjallajökull.

In 2010, flights stopped all over the world as Eyjafjallajökull erupted and the ash prevented flights. You will run through the lava of gods that was formed in this eruption and you will run past the volcanoes, Magni and Móði. Then the descent is into the woody, magical greenish mountain area of the Valley of Thor where the view will take your breath away. Once down, you arrive in Strákagil where the second aid station is situated. The last part to Húsadal is rather flat. You cross the famous river of Krossá through a walking bridge and end the run in Húsadal at Volcano Huts.

Ofurhress hlaupari :)

Who is fit
for this race?

The path is challenging. The person concerned must be well trained and able to climb and descend on the plateau. However, it is not necessary to move quickly. For people in good shape, it is possible to walk the route briskly in less than 7 hours, but that is the time limit. Í fyrra féll enginn á tíma, fólk kláraði hlaupið frá 2,50 klst. til 6,24 klst.

Whether the plan is to focus on getting the fastest possible time or just enjoy the route, take pictures en route and smell the roses, anyone who is in shape to handle the route should be able to do it within the time limits.
