Norway 6 May: Risør - Horten
A long Sunday with many km's and very few meetings was about to start. Our task: cover almost 200 km to approach Oslo...
Nevertheless a few brave runners took their chance to carry the torch through their community: in Kragerø we found new friends - the Kragerø Ski & Rønners 1978...
190 km later we reached Horten. The red carpet was not meant for us, but we got a very warm welcome by the mayor of Horten, Børre Jacobsen.
A short, symbolic run across the main square..
Although not much happened that day we really enjoyed the long distance running in Norway's stunning nature. Thanks for the experience!
