Shepparton - Bendigo

Reported by Amalendu Edelsten 130.0 km

Running through quiet country roads past fields and orchards.

Enthusiastic kids greeted us at Rochester Primary School.

Smiling and sharing a moment with the Peace Torch

Dedicating a Peace Tree in the front yard with all the children.

Peace blossoms give us inspiration

Let's work together...

We're all runners now!

A flying finish to another 5km leg.

Many thanks to Kelly and Michael of Avondel Caravan Park in Bendigo for providing free accommodation for the team.
