Australia 11 September: Lake Cullulleraine - Renmark
Day 2 of our Riverland Adventure
Renmark embraces the Peace Run
The majestic expanse of Lake Cullulleraine provided a wonderful opportunity for a few moments of peaceful reflection before we commenced our journey this morning.
Creative drying techniques come in very handy when on the Peace Run. Here we see Sascha's shirt hanging underneath Orion's Belt
Our wonderful coordinator and captain, Ivan Marek; always cheerful, never flustered - a real stalwart of the Australian Peace Run team.
Team member Grahak Cunningham manages a smile despite a buffeting head wind and dusty conditions. Grahak is a four-time finisher of the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race.
Sascha from Moscow doesn't speak a lot of english but his tireless enthusiasm more than makes up for it.
Mayor Neil Martinson of Renmark Paringa Council welcomed us to Renmark Primary School. Mayoral robes always make for a great photo! Thank you Neil!
It is hard not be optimistic for the future of our country and the world at large when you spend time with such happy and sincere children
Renmark Primary will plant a Peace Tree and install this plaque in the coming weeks to commemorate the visit of the Peace Run
Kathryn & Sharon from RECOCHEM donated all the torch fuel for the Peace Run. Thank you very much - our torches have been burning beautifully!
Local Peace Run Supporter Anne from Ventura Motel once again donated accommodation for some of our team members. Thank you Anne!
Riverfront Holiday Park must be truly one of the best holiday parks in Australia. Thank you so much for providing such a delightful cabin.
Jass and his family are new to the hotel industry but that didn't stop them from donating a room for two of our runners. We were very touched.
