Age grouper of the week
PIOTR KURYLO, our Forrest Gump!
He ran from Augustow to Athens.... And it took him about 6 weeks to go there. And it is not less than 2450km... He took a couple of days rest and participated in the Spartathlon 2007 race at a distance of 245km... Completed 2nd at 24h29min....
He started his trip to Greece with only 600 EUR for the whole "race". Due to some turistic targets he made aprox. 3500km going to Athens. Having so small amount of money he had to eat only bread and milk... All his luggage was with him on a trolley he was pulling all the way there. After reaching Greece he went to the mountains for a 10 days altitude training.... Just shortly before the race went down to the competition place, entering the hotel with long bead and hair. Not clean at all. But as he said my apparence just confused competitors and I smashed them physically...
As you know he was the second beating his PB by 7hours!!!! After the race when he heard that current winner (2 times) is willing to make it 3rd time, he said: I am afraid it will be difficult for him...
When you are here next time I will show you some photos and there will be probably a chance to have a run with him.
Oh, I forgot about his plan for the rest of the season:
- 100km in Egypt
- Race from Augustow to Brussels (1200km)...
