Brautartunga - Reykjavík

Reported by Suren Suballabhason 110.0 km

We started in the highlands where we left off yesterday

Við hófum hlaup á hálendinu

Natural hot pool

Krosslaug

The glacier is never far away

Ávallt sést í jökulinn

It's impossible not to be moved by the peace of Iceland in these beautiful surroundings

Friðurinn í íslensku náttúrunni hefur óneitanlega áhrif á hlauparana

Arriving at Þingvellir national park and all the tourists wanted to hold the Torch and make a wish for peace

Þegar við komum að Þingvöllum vildu allir ferðamennirnir halda á Friðarkyndlinum og leggja fram sínar óskir um frið í heimi

At Mosfellsbær, the local running club, Mosóskokk joined us

Í Mosfellsbæ slógust í hópinn Mosóskokkararnir

The Peace Tree of Mosfellsbær, planted 2 years ago

Friðartréð í Mosfellsbæ, sem plantað var fyrir 2 árum

Entering into Reykjavík, the first district is Grafarvogur, where the running club, Skokkhópur Fjölnis joined us. They have run with us many times before

Í Grafarvogi bættist Skokkhópur Fjölnis í hópinn, en þau hafa hlaupið margsinnis áður með okkur

The next district was Grafarholt, where the running club Fram joined us. By now, we were quite a large group

Í Grafarholti bættist Skokk- og gönguhópur Fram í hópinn

Feeling the joy of peace

This lady ran with us 14km and her son joined her for the last steps

Our final destination of today: The Peace Tree of Reykjavík, where we'll have the opening ceremony tomorrow. Many thanks to all the runners for joining us; many of them ran about 15km with us!

Komið að friðartré Reykjavíkurborgar þar sem opnunarathöfnin fer fram á morgun. Kærar þakkir hlauparar fyrir samfylgdina! Mörg þeirra hlupu 15km með okkur.
