A man from the Czech Republic is running 21 marathons across Iceland over 21 days
After recovering from a serious car accident, Réné Kujan of the Czech Republic decided to use his feet for good and is now in Iceland running one marathon each day for 21 days to raise money for charity, reports RÚV.
This is not the first time Réné has run long distance in Iceland, he ran around the country two years ago, from the northern most point of Iceland to the southern most point last year and is currently about half-way through with the 900 kilometres he is attempting to run now.
Réné is running to raise money for Íþróttasamband Fatlaðra (The Sports Association For The Disabled).
“[To reach the 900 kilometre goal] I basically need to run at least one marathon each day, or roughly 42 kilometres. Yesterday I ran 50,” said Réné who is pushing a running cart packed with food, a sleeping bag, his tent and other essentials. “I eat a lot. A lot of chocolate, fish, Icelandic fish and dried fish. [The toughest part of all this?] It’s pretty hard finding a place to set up the tent at night.”
