Can you imagine a place in the ends of the earth, surrounded by snow covered mountain tops, a land of powerful winds, very damp, with temperatures varying between -10°C and -5°C (betw. 14°F and 23°F). Hot smokes emanate from the earth, the average temperature of the water in the lagoons around you is 34°C (93°F), and not so far from there a well known volcano appears among the clouds.
The heart of the Earth seems so close ... Welcome to Iceland for the Iceland Running Adventure Race.
You can choose between the 42 km race in two stages and the 118 Km in 2 stages too. Please note, that in case the climate conditions become too hard, the long distance race could be shortened.
Anything can happen in this wild area ... Finishing is the objective, Iceland is truly a place where nature rules, let’s try to face it ! So why don’t you come and enjoy an extraordinary trail experience !...
An extraordinary journey from the sea to the land
The course is laid out with a first stage which will start on the slope of the most famous volcano in the world : the Eyjafjallajokull.
And then, the course will be across a more and more wild nature, sprinkled of more or less extinct volcanoes, and grasslands with icelandic horses.
The goal of this first step will be being near of the most active Icelandic volcano : the Hekla and an amazing lava field.
During the journey, you’ll see ancient icelandic farms, with no tourist but maybe local people.
Welcome to the Icelandic desert !
The second step we’ll be in a last farm before going to a typical wet forest. You’ll see the volcano lava or undulating rivers before joining a wonderful natural site only present in Iceland.
The adventure for accompanying people with special SUV
Tendao has concocted an original programm for all the accompanying people who will follow the race with the TV staff and the doctor. They’ll discover the course, will go across the rivers, climb the mountains and take the advantage of the warm water springs before the racers arrive.
At the hotel or in the blue Lagoon, the 40° baths are institutions. The outside Jacuzzis, the warm water springs…Iceland is a land that you live in swimsuit !
A good way to rest between the steps.
During the week, the competitors will stay in 4 pleasant and high quality hotels.
It’s one of the main point of the organization of the Tendao races. A high quality lodging, good meals, insurance et security for the competitors thanks to a travel agency licence.
