This year, 2017, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is celebrating its 30th year! Since 1987 Peace torches have been carried by runners across Europe to offer a message of Peace and Oneness to all people and all countries. The message of the Peace Run is becoming valued and recognised more and more with each step that is taken - Peace in the world begins with Peace in the heart of each and every person. As we continue forward, we will continue to share the torch of Peace with children, athletes, and supportive individuals from all countries and all backgrounds. The world is a family, we are all brothers and sisters, and Europe will become a home, a Oneness-Home, founded on Peace, for all.
In 2017 we will celebrate our 30th anniversary by having two major continuous routes which will converge for a final ceremony in Minsk, Belarus on July 7th 2017. The Western route will start in Galway, Ireland by the Atlantic Ocean on April 26th 2017. The Eastern route will start in the east of Russia. Other runs will take place in Latvia, Ukraine, Croatia, Spain, the Faroe Islands, the Azores, Madeira, and Portugal. In September there will be a Peace Run from Rome to Assisi.
Please join us along the route and carry the Peace torch for a few steps, a kilometre or further.
