The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run for 2015 started in York on October 13th and concluded in Perth on October 23rd. Our two teams of runners covered a special 1,000-kilometre loop through the diverse South-West corner of Western Australia. If you wish to read our daily reports, you can follow the runners day by day as they journeyed southwards through the ‘wheat belt’ country to the historic port city of Albany. Their return run back towards Perth followed ‘The Great Southern Coast’, one of Australia’s most scenic coastlines. The runners then passed through the ancient Karri forests around Pemberton. Further north, they reached the large coastal city of Bunbury. They then turned inland once more and continued through the famed produce region of Harvey and the National Park of Serpentine Valley before their journey culminated in Perth.
Along the way, the Peace Run teams visited many country schools and councils, planted numerous Peace Trees, and received abundant hospitality and kindness at every step. We invite you to view the many moving photographs of city officials and schoolchildren holding the Peace Torch and to offer your own hopes and dreams for a better, brighter and more peaceful world. Our sincere gratitude to everyone who participated in this year’s Peace Run . . . and perhaps we shall meet you on the road in 2016.
