Wow… what an Easter it has been ! First, Mogens Pedersen and I warmed up with the Dublet in Hamburg and Rotterdam (see previous post) and then came the triplet in Jutland, the first two marathons completed within 24 hours and the last one, the so-called toughest marathon in Denmark, Aalborg Brutal marathon, following Friday. Quite a challenge, quite a feat !
For the foreigners: Jutland is a remote part of Denmark only barely with electricity, the people speak a funny ancient dialect and are intimate with their cattle 🙂 Ahh.. well… maybe not… anyways… three runs within three days and in nice weather in these outlands… just perfect !
First, Wednesday evening… a small race near Horsens… running at the sea and on an easy, flat course… pictures here.
Then, Thursday, time for the extreme challenge in ‘Hasle bakker’ near Aarhus where we climbed the VERY big hills no less than 22 times, for sure making this one of the toughest marathons in Denmark ever and making Aalborg Brutal on Friday look like a kindergarden fun-run. Enjoy the pictures from Hasle bakker here.
Lastly – and making the Triplet complete – the enjoyable Aalborg Brutal marathon… this year in sublime sunshine and with great support from the crowds on the notorious hill on ‘Skovbakkevej’. Indeed a very tough run and more so on a day three in row !
You find the brutal pictures here.
