The Sri Chinmoy Oneness Home Peace Run for 2016 will begin on September the 5th in the vibrant regional city of Wangaratta, in Victoria’s High Country.
This year’s event will then embark on a scenic route through the beautiful Ovens Valley in the Victorian Alps before traversing northern Victoria and following the central Victorian goldfields trail through Bendigo, Dunolly, Maryborough and Avoca.
The runners will be visiting towns that have not previously hosted the event so there this will be a new and exciting experience for all involved.
The eleven day event will cover more than 900km of rural Victoria including a visit to Geriwerd National Park (Hall’s Gap) on the weekend. It will see some 40 new Peace Trees planted or dedicated along the entire route and visit numerous schools, councils and community groups as the loop is completed through to Melbourne via Hamilton and Geelong.
At the conclusion of this year’s Peace Run there will be a special two day event hosted by Melbourne’s shire of Manningham followed by a visit to Puffing Billy, a steam train in the Dandenong Ranges, where Sri Chinmoy himself visited in September 1984.
