A runner with a target of 6 hrs and 30 minutes should complete the first two sections of the course in approximately 1 hour and 18 minutes for each section, and the second two sections in approximately 1 hour 57 minutes each.
Some time will be lost at refreshment stations, which will shorten the actual running time for each section. Two to three minutes should be sufficient to get a drink or fill a water bottle but even a stop of this length at each main drink station will mean a total of 10 minutes lost. Runners hoping to complete the course in less than 7 hours should take care not to exceed this time at drink stations.
The trail is maintained and serviced by Ferdaflag lslands (F), the Iceland Touring Association. See further information here: fi.is/en/hiking-trails/laug…
