The Weather Watch has sent us a new weather forecast for the Laugavegur trail tomorrow. The forecast looks better today with some expected sun by Emstrur and the finish line. Fog, rain, and headwind are still expected at the highest peak, Hrafntinnusker. Therefore we ask you please look for the orange flags in the snow so you don´t get lost in the fog.

According to the trail wardens and the hikers, the status of the trail is good. The snow is retreating but is still on the trail for about 2-3 km before and after Hrafntinnusker. On some parts, you should expect to go through some wet and slushy snow.
The race bus
We want to remind you that the race bus leaves from the Ice skating rink (Skautahöllin) in Laugardalur at 4:30 am. Those who have ordered a seat in the bus from Selfoss will have to be at the N1 gas station at 5:00 and those who will jump in at Hrauneyjar should be ready at 7:00. It is very important that you show up in time because the bus cannot wait for anyone. You can use the toilets at the Ice skating rink from 4:15-4:25. Next change to use the toilet will be in Hrauneyjar around two hours later.
