═slandsvinur hleypur aleinn styrktarhlaup yfir ═sland


TÚkkinn RenÚ Kujan lag­i Ý gŠr upp Ý hlaup yfir ═sland frß nor­i til su­urs til a­ safna ßheitum til styrktar Hollvinum Grensßsdeildar en megintilgangur ■eirra er a­ sty­ja vi­ og efla starf Grensßsdeildar LSH sem er mi­st÷­ frumendurhŠfingar ß ═slandi; og ═■rˇttasambandi fatla­ra.

 

A­ baki ■essa atbur­ar er einst÷k saga.  RenÚ var­ fyrir slysi Ý heimalandi sÝnu fyrir tŠpum 6 ßrum og missti allan mßtt Ý fˇtum.  En hann gafst ekki upp og tˇkst me­ einst÷kum dugna­i og mikilli ˇsÚrhlÝfni og ■jßlfun a­ endurheimta g÷ngu- og sÝ­an hlaupafŠrni sÝna. RenÚ ßkva­ a­ sřna ■akklŠti sitt fyrir a­ geta gengi­ ß nř me­ ■vÝ a­ hlaupa sem vÝ­ast og safna Ý lei­inni ßheitum fyrir ■au sem ekki hafa veri­ eins lßns÷m og hann. Ůar sem hann hefur hrifist mj÷g af ═slandi, ve­urfarinu, ˇbygg­unum og m÷rgu ÷­ru,  ■ß kemur hann aftur til a­ hlaupa ß ═slandi til styrktar ═slendingum.  ┴ sÝ­astli­nu ßri hljˇp hann umhverfis ═sland ß hringveginum til styrktar ═■rˇttasambandi fatla­ra.  Hlaup hans a­ ■essu sinni ver­ur ÷llu erfi­ari ■vÝ hann ver­ur Ý ˇbygg­um mestan hluta lei­arinnar, lengi vel aleinn.  Hlaupi­, alls yfir 500 km, sem ߊtla­ er a­ taka muni tvŠr vikur,  hefst ß Rifstanga ß MelrakkaslÚttu.  Ůa­ liggur sÝ­an m.a. yfir Sprengisand og Fjallabakslei­ nyr­ri, ˇbr˙a­ar ßr og lřkur ß sy­sta hluta ═slands fyrir ne­an Hj÷rleifsh÷f­a stutt frß VÝk Ý Mřrdal.  RenÚ ■arf a­ hafa me­ sÚr nau­synlegan b˙na­, vistir, vatnsheldan svefnpoka og tjald, Ý kerru sem hann bindur vi­ sig.  Stu­ningsli­ mun vera honum til a­sto­ar eftir f÷ngum og eins ver­ur leitast vi­ a­ koma birg­um til hans ß lei­inni.

A FRIEND OF ICELAND RUNS ALONE AROSS ICELAND
IN SUPPORT OF SPECIAL CAUSES

 
RenÚ Kujan from the Czech Republic commences a run across Iceland from the north to the south started last Tuesday June 18th with the objective of collecting donations in support of  the Friends of Grensasdeild society,  the main purpose of which is to support and promote the activities of Grensasdeild - the physical rehabilitation center of Landspitali ľ University Hospital;  as well as the activities  of the Disabled Sports Association.
 
Behind this event lies a remarkable story.  Following an accident in his home country almost six years ago RenÚĹs legs were paralysed.  But he did not give up and succeeded with incredible drive, disregard for personal comfort and training to regain his ability to walk and then run.  RenÚ decided to show his gratitude for being able to walk again by running in as many places as possible and while so doing collecting donations for those who have not been as fortunate as he has been.  Because he has been captivated by Iceland, its climate, wilderness and much more he has returned to run in the country in support of Icelanders.  Last year he ran around the whole country on the circular highway in support of the Disabled Sports Association.  His run this time will be much more challenging because he will be in wilderness country most of the time,  often alone.  The run, a distance in excess of 500 km estimated to take two weeks to cover, commences at Rifstangi on the Melrakka plain. It then goes through i.a. Sprengisandur and the Northern Fjallabaks trail,  unbrigded rivers and ends in the southernmost part of Iceland below Hjorleifshofdi, a short distance from the village of Vik in Myrdal.  RenÚ will need to bring with him necessary supplies, provisions, a waterproof sleeping bag, and a tent in a small cart which will be attached to him.  A support group will assist him as circumstances permit and efforts will also be made to furnish him with provisions en route.
 
Further information about the run as it progresses will be provided by
Ivar Trausti Josafatsson, tel. 896 2266 and on IvarĹs Facebook page www.facebook.com/ivar.josafatsson as well as on Facebook page Smart Projects.
