Portable toilets

There will be portable toilets in or by Landmannalaugar, Hrafntinnusker, Alftavatn lake, Emstrur and Husadalur, Thorsmork. It is forbidden by law to leave any human waste on the track and all participants are kindly asked to bring bags with them if needed when there are no portable toilets around. At the start in Landmannalaugar runners are asked to show consideration and let the first start group use the toilets first. This is done to ensure that everything goes smoothly and all runners are ready at the correct time.

Head count and security service

Race officials are in charge of the headcount on the course that takes place by Alftavatn lake and the Emstrur hut and make sure to follow through with the cut-off time rules. They will also assist when assistance is needed when participants need to cross rivers

Mid point bag

The extra luggage that participants can have waiting for them at the mid point, by Blafjallakvisl will be transported there from Reykjavík the day before the race. After everyone has passed the mid-point, the bags will be taken straight to Reykjavík. Read more about the extra luggage here.

Race officials

The Reykjavik Sports Union is the organizer of the Laugavegur Ultra Marathon. Their staff members will be by the start line when you start your race in Landmannalaugar and by the finish line in Husadalur, Thorsmork. Race officials and volunteers all around the course are members of a running group in the town Selfoss called Friskir Floamenn and rescue team members from Arborg's rescue team in Selfoss . This is a group of 50 people, both men and women, and they have 5 mountain cars with them that will service the participants on the course. Other volunteers will be located in Husadalur, Thorsmork, by the finish line and most of them are runners them self's and few of them have taken part in the Laugavegur Ultra Marathon. There will be a doctor and a few nurses by the finish line as well.

Because of a given reason, we would like to point out to all participants that during the course there will be times where no race officials or volunteers will be at eyesight. We expect everyone participating to have read all the course direction information provided and that they will be properly equipped in case of an accident or other unforeseen incidents if they need to wait for some time for help to reach them.

The Laugavegur Ultra Marathon is organized by Reykjavik Sports Union, a union of sports clubs in Reykjavik.
