Australia 27 February: Traralgon - Drouin

Closer to the goal

This morning we started our day at Kay park where the Peace Run meet with State MP Russell Northe MLA, Member for Morwell, a fellow marathon runner with an impressive time of around 3.30. He welcomed us to Traralgon and wished us well on our journey through to Melbourne.

A short 600m rum from Kay park brought us to Grey Street Primary School, meeting grade 5 and 6's. They all had fun learning the Peace Run song and all the school captains came up to receive the Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of the school. Their Principal is also an avid runner: it seems everyone we have met in this area is a great runner.

Having taken a moment to run around the school grounds with the students we soon departed to run into Trafalgar. We split the team into three to cover the distance.

Another beautiful morning in Australia.
