"The best trail race in East Iceland"
"As we stood on the pier in Neskaupstaður, waiting for the boat and our turn to cross the fjord to the start line on the distant other side, it felt like a dream finally coming true.
It‘s a long time since we first toyed with the idea of running in the Barðsnes Trail Race in the Eastfjords in Iceland. Distance had been the main obstacle, as Neskaupstaður is 700km away from where we live in Reykjavik.
Driving there in one day is not really realistic, nor much fun. We decided to make a road trip out of it, giving ourselves two days to get there. We spent one night at the camping site in the beautiful national park Skaftafell."
