Iceland 6 July: Höfn - Djúpivogur

Finally the World Harmony Run in Iceland is connected to the Internet again, but it has been rather difficult to arrange it for the last couple of days. Hopefully, we will be able to keep better updated from now on.

The day began by running from the township of Höfn and it was Jóhann H. Haraldsson that ran the first steps. Jóhann ran through the new tunnel through Almannaskarð and then continued to run for a while longer. All in all, he ran 10 kilometers and gave the World Harmony Run a good start. Afterwards, the World Harmony Runners ran onwards alone. On many occasions passing drivers stopped their cars to learn about the Run, many of which used this opportunity to carry the torch for a few meters.

Around twelve o’clock we ran across Guðbrandur Einarsson and Bjarki Birgisson. Guðbrandur and Bjarki are doing a walk around Iceland entitled “The lame leads the blind,” a saying which comes from Hávamál, the ancient Icelandic scriptures. Guðbrandur and Bjarki had already covered 10 kilometers that day but they were in excellent mood and were very inspiring. The purpose of their walk is to make people more aware of an organization called Sjonarholl which is a support center for children and teenagers with special needs. They deserve great credit for their selflessness in this undertaking. It was inspiring for us to meet and talk to them. Guðbrandur and Bjarki expect to finish their walk on the 4th of August.

The run was smooth that day even though it rained a little, but the climate was warm and mild. The Youth Sports Club Neisti welcomed us at Barðavellir in Hamarsfjörður. Awaiting us there was a group of people on three cars who received the torch and ran dynamically with it all the way to Djúpavogur. Magnús Hreinsson, a police officer, followed the World Harmony Run to ensure that everything went smoothly.

The participants from Youth Sports Club Neisti were: Guðjón Rafn Steinsson, Guðjón Sveinsson, Sigurjón Már Ólason, Gabríel Björgvinsson and Ársæll Axelsson
