Dyrfjallahlaup race - Borgarfjörður Eystri 2021

July 10


10th of July 2021

12 km or 24 km trail run

East Iceland


2021 will be the fifth time this race around the mountains of Dyrfjöll is held. Dyrfjöll are some of the more majestic mountains in the East. Their name means "Door mountains" and the name comes from the pass that goes right between the mountain ridge, like a door ("Door Mountains Race"). It's certainly worth the visit every day, but for a mountain runner, the Dyrfjallahlaup race is the perfect event to explore the area. The view from the mountain passes on this route does not let anyone down. Elevation is more than 1000 meters so one gets a good view over the area. The route also lies through Stórurð, which consists of gigantic boulders made of tuff, meadows and fresh water ponds. 

Distance 24km  or 12 km

Elevation 1087m

 Highest point 683 m above sea level
