Hengill Ultra 81km/50km

5th edition

The Hengill Ultra trail run takes its name from the Hengill volcano, which last erupted about 2000 years ago. Even though it hasn’t erupted for so long time, it is still considered active and on their way, runners need to be cautious as they will come across with hot springs and muddy roads.

The run starts off and finishes in Hveragerði, which is a small town of 2400 people, located in about one hour drive from the international airport in Keflavík and about 35 minute drive from the capital city, Reykjavík.

Runners can choose from two different distances, 50km or 81km (50 miles).

81km – 17.000 ISK
50km – 12.000 ISK

The 81km starts of at 05:00 am
The 50km starts of at 09:00 am

Note that the 81km run counts for 4 points in qualification for the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc (UTMB).
