Adelaide, SA

Reported by Abhinandan Willis, Anubha Baird, Atul Arora, Saranyu Pearson 5.0 km

Not long to go now and still more media mentions are coming to our attention, some of these from as far back as Brisbane. Who can remember when we were there?

* this from the Deputy Principal of Greenslopes State School in Brisbane at the start of this year's Peace Run journey;
* Around You has a mention of the Peace Run's arrival in Port Macquarie, NSW;
* Philippa Brotchie has reported on the team's visit to Rosary Primary School in Canberra;
* jumping ahead to Melbourne, this from Mr Izzard's class blog ... and this extract from the newsletter of Kerrimuir Public School;
* in other media, The Miner ran this piece on the team's visit to Ballarat.

After a big week of running, today provided the perfect opportunity to see some local sights. The kind staff at Dolphin Explorer offered free tickets to the entire team to enjoy a Port River Dolphin Cruise. It was a joyous experience!

Today's running was short yet very significant. The last 4.8 km of our 3479 km took us past the Sri Chinmoy Peace Mile ...

... across the River Torrens ...

... and then on to the Parliament House of South Australia ...

... the exact point at which the inaugural Australian Sri Chinmoy Peace Run commenced in 1987.

Tomorrow we will visit schools in Adelaide before the closing ceremony on Tuesday morning.
