The weather in Iceland can be unpredictable, especially in the highlands where the sun can become rain in matter of minutes. We do recommend that you bring a broad variety off clothes and pick your gear the day before the race or even on the morning of the race.

It’s hard to say, it’s Iceland, and the weather is unpredictable. There could be strong winds, horizontal rain or sunny skies. There are water-crossings so your feet will get wet. The best remedy is wool sock – and perhaps extra wool socks. On a great day shorts and short sleeves are terrific but bringing a jacket is always wise as things can turn south in a matter of minutes.

In the 200 km, 100 km and the 45 km course there are water crossings. The stream isn’t that strong but the depth can vary, particularly if there are many rainy days before the race. The depth can be up to half of a 700c wheel. If you’re insecure crossing on the bike, we recommend walking over.

For the 200 km race you phone will have connection most of the course. You might encounter some areas on Kaldidalur (highest point of the course) where your signal might drop. 

On the 45 km and on the 100 km your phone signal should be just fine for most of the ride.
