Australia 16 April: Mt. Kosciuszko - Jindabyne
The summit of Australia
We were inspired to do a Peace Run from the summit of Mt. Kosciuszko, Australia's tallest Mountain, to finish at the statue of Sri Chinmoy, the founder of the Peace Run, located on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra. It will take us three days of running.
First we had to get to the top of Mt. Kosciuszko. So our day began with a really fun chairlift ride.
Along the way much of the trail is raised up on metal walk ways to preserve the delicate alpine vegetation.
Meanwhile down at lower altitudes Nurari, Hastakamala and Anubha started their leg of today's relay.
