My Adventure - Crossing Borders

Fredrik is running out of the trading room at the bank to help others in need!
“It is important for me to give something back and to help others. Through my adventure, which is about crossing borders, I will help raise funds for Doctors Without Borders. All donations to this project are sent in full directly to their work."

What are you up to this summer?
Reading a book? Relaxing in the sun? Or maybe just resting outside in a hammock? Fredrik Hjorth leaves the trading room at the bank to replace his suit for a backpack and trail run 300km, approx. 7 marathons, in 10 days! Fredrik Hjorth - economist, entrepreneur and now adventurer - is heading out on his dream adventure – To take on the beautiful and historical Camino Primitivo from Asturias to Galicia on old paths, through dense forests, on gravel roads, over mountains, crossing rivers and historical sites.

Pass it forward – Doctors Without Borders
I want to raise awareness that we can all contribute to help those in need of an helping hand. To provide means for better health, schools and education. To let others be able to reach their full potential.The adventure is dedicated to Doctors Without Borders. All donations are sent 100% directly to their work.

My adventure - Crossing Borders
This adventure will cross borders at many different levels. On a personal level I will challenge myself by doing something I have never attempted before, trail running a total of 300km in consecutive days. By raising funds for Doctors Without Borders, I will help crossing the border between those who can share to those who are in need. The border of today and 1 200 year old history will also be crossed. There are many more, and I am sure you could think of a few right now. Which borders would you like to cross to make a difference?

The Challenge
I have never attempted to run a distance like this for so many days in a row. Thanks to being a one of the 15 students at Haglöfs Adventure Academy I have had a unique opportunity to prepare properly. Physically I have prepared myself with training focused on preparing for this challenge, which will be tough in many ways.

The Original Way - The Path of a King
In the 900th century upon hearing the news that the tomb of the apostle St James was found through a vision, the king Alphonso II set out from the capital, Oviedo, by foot to see this spectacular finding for himself. He travelled along the path that is now since then marked and named "The Original Way" (In Spanish, "Camino Primitivo). It is the most seclusive path to Santiago de Compostela and the most authentic!

Examination Project, Haglöfs Adventure Academy
Crossing Borders is the examination project for Fredrik Hjorth and part of the requirements for completing the examination at Haglöfs Adventure Academy 2014. The purpose is to combine all the knowledge and training from the academy during Spring to execute a dream adventure in a safe and prepared manner.The training includes all the elements necessary to plan, prepare, execute and to follow-up on an adventure expedition.
