In sight of Sant JuliÓ de L˛ria      

On the night of December 2nd to 3rd, the traditional "Rosa del Nord" Night Run was held, which commemorates the passage of a group of fugitives -in which Saint JosemarÝa Escrivß de Balaguer was going- through the Pyrenees to enter Andorra on the night of December 1-2, 1937.

With this race we want to remember the passage of thousands of people persecuted by totalitarian ideologies during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) and the Second World War (1942-1945). These ideologies imposed terror on a good number of people who were forced to flee at night, crossing rivers and mountains, to recover the freedom that was denied to them in their countries of origin. The fugitives were usually in scanty clothing, poor footwear, little food, extreme cold and fatigue.

That's why this race is done at night, without provisions, in self-sufficiency and in pairs, to show what those expeditions through the Pyrenees could be like to reach freedom.

The race starts at the Sports Center of Bellestar and ends at the Sports Center of Sant JuliÓ de L˛ria. They are 22 km long with a positive gradient of 1,600 meters.

In addition to the Race, there is also a Walk, with the same itinerary but with different departure times.

The organization was run by the Andorran company VSL SPORTS and the Associaciˇ d'Amics del CamÝ de Pallerols de Rialb in Andorra, with the collaboration of the Commune of Sant JuliÓ de L˛ria and the Lleida company CUPASA and the Sponsorship of 226ERS and SISMIC.

   Comment Com diu en Pere penso que estÓ ben explicat. La notÝcia diuen textualment: "Amb aquesta cursa volem recordar el pas de milers de persones perseguides per ideologies totalitÓries durant la Guerra Civil espanyola (1936-39) i la Segona Guerra Mundial (1942-1945). Aquestes ideologies van imposar el terror sobre un bon nombre de persones que es van veure obligades a fugir de nit, travessant rius i muntanyes, per recuperar la llibertat que els era negada als seus pa´sos dĺorigen.

   Comment Crec que estÓ perfectament explicat al text que EscrivÓ fugia tambÚ d'un rŔgim totalitari
   
  Author Leopoldo Abadia  | 09/12/2023
   Comment Nuestro Padre y los que le acompa˝aban no se escapaban por los totalitarismos, sino porque en Madrid los comunistas mataban sacerdotes. Por eso, nuestro Padre con otros estuvo refugiado en la Legaciˇn de Honduras. Me parece muy bien ser caritativos con los que hicieron tanto da˝o, pero no se puede falsear la historia. Si no queremos recordar lo malo, nos callamos, pero si se hubiera quedado en Madrid, muy probablemente le habrÝan asesinado,,como a tantos otros. Un abrazo muy fuerte y muy agradecido por todo el trabajo que estßis haciendo. Leopoldo
