Um viðburðinn:

Salomon Trail Hengill Ultra will take place for the 12th consecutive time on June 9.-10. 2023. Unique trails around Hengill volcano with breathtaking views attract numerous runners, making Salomon Trail Hengill Ultra the largest trail run in Iceland.

There will be various distances to choose from, 5km, 10km, 26km, 53km, 106km and 100 miles (161 km). Along with the Midnight Trail Run where participants can choose from 10km, 26km or 53km trails and run under the midnight sky in Iceland! For the Midnight Trail Run there are limited slots available, 100 participants for the 26km and 53km - and 200 participants in the 10km trail.

The starting point for all trails and the event management HQ location will be at the heart of the town of Hveragerði. The shorter distances will be around the town and up towards the hills of the surrounding mountains which are amazingly beautiful. The 25km trail goes up the Reykjadalur valley towards Ölkelduhjúkur peak and around that point. The 50km trail continues from there into the Hengill area, over the mountain valley, down via Sleggjubeinsskarð and then heading back. The 106km trail repeats that loop twice and three times for the 100 mile trail. The view from Hengill is truly amazing and breathtaking, making it one of the most beautiful routes in Iceland.

During the Salomon Hengill Ultra event, the town of Hveragerði morphs into a carnival atmosphere of sorts where you'll find markets at the sports centre with Icelandic artwork and products, local Icelandic produce and curiosities in the town shops. All pre-trail meetings and briefings for all distances along with the awards ceremony, will be held at the sports centre.

Hengill Ultra is a UTMB World Series Qualifier and ITRA member
