This is a story about 12 greats friends, 7 runners, 1 great adventure and 1 good cause. This year, a group of our guides and office staff are participating in the 55km Laugavegur Ultramarathon, a gruelling 55km journey through the Icelandic Highlands. For some of them this intense journey has taken many months of training and preparation to get to prepare for.
Who are they?
Who is in the team, you might be wondering? Well, here they are, from the Left as per the picture above:
A trail run, and more than a trail run
In addition to the trail run itself, Team Fjalló has chosen to seize the opportunity and use the run to raise funds to support Pieta, a new organisation dedicated to revitalizing the institutional options available to those who have been affected by mental health issues. All funds raised will go directly to the oragnisation, and there are prizes too!
The participating guides are offering up hiking, glacier walking and mountaineering trips to those that donate.
