Today was the day for a special run here in my home town of Stavanger. For the last years they have been working on a quite long under sea tunnel, to make it possible for people to travel without using a ferry across the fjord.
All that is left before the tunnel is ready to be opened is some testing and little fixes. So a while back someone got a good idea to arrange a race in the tunnel before it opens. It was a great success and 7000 people are signed up to run a undersea half marathon today. 20 of 21 kilometers is run inside tunnels and it is quite a steep hill to start and finish.
The weather was wonderful, not that that is the most important when you are running in a tunnel, but it was nice for me. I went for my walk to see some of the life and action around this once in a lifetime run.
It looked like a very well organized run and people were very happy to be part of this once in a life time run, as you should only do something like this when there is not regular traffic in the tunnel. I only saw people before the run, I did not take the ferry across to the other side to see what the people out running now thinks when they arrive at the finish line.
Hope you’re all enjoying a lovely Saturday.
