After 72 days and 1,889 kilometres, Erlend Moster Knudsen finished his Northern Run of the Pole to Paris project. At October 13th he came in to Bergen, at the final day including a 38 kilometre trek over two mountains. For the final leg to town he was accompanied at Brushytten by more than 30 climate researchers at the BCCR and students at the UiB.
The group run strait to Litteraturhuset were Tekna and the Bjerknes Centre had a joint event. As the other participants had smoe snacks, Erlend run direct to TV2 for a live interview in studio at 17.15. At 17.35 he entered the Litteraturhuset and gave his Pole to Paris talk.
Erlend is now taking a well-deserved rest from the run to Paris. The road to Paris is covered by a relay from Edinburgh to London, before Erlend joins in in London in November. Follow the Northern Run at facebook and poletoparis.com
During his run Erlend caught a lot of media attention, not only by the local press along the route, but also by the CNN on the other side of the Atlantic.
