Soldiers of Győr ran with the EYOF-Flame

Hungarian soldiers of the 12th Arrabona Surface to Air Missile (of the Hungarian Defence Forces) joined into the "EYOF Flame-run program, which leads up the European Youth Olympic Festival starting soon. The soldiers of the air defence unit ran around the capital of Győr-Moson-Sopron County with the Flame in their hands.

The EYOF-Flame arrived to the 12th SAM Wing on Friday the 7th of July. Fifty Hungarian soldiers of the air defence unit ran a more than 25 km circle in military practicing suit, hitting 25 exchange points, following the path through city parts Győr-Likócs, Gyárváros (Factory City), Szabadhegy, Nádorváros (Nádor City), Marcalváros (Marcal City), Sziget, Révfalu, Gyárváros, Likócs – naturally hitting several main planned venues and establishments of the Olympic Festival.

Ferenc Könczöl colonel, commanding officer of the unit leaving for foreign mission started the relay race at seven in the morning from the gate of the barrack; the line was closed naturally by Tibor Matyi lieutenant-colonel, the commissioned commander of the next period, taking symbolically the relay from his superior.

Complying with the rules of KRESZ (Highway Code) the soldiers of Győr accomplished the appointed distance under two and a half hour. They not only took their parts in connection with the Flame-run from the preparations of the international sport event, since on the 24th of May at the Pér Airport they provided a military welcome to the landing plane transporting the Flame arriving from Rome, furthermore it is planned that they will have a role on the Opening Ceremony of the event on the 23th of July.
