Belgium 12 August: Binsfeld (L) - Namur (BE)
A Busy Sunday In The Belgian Mountains
It was a taxing run, because we were a little pressed for time, the course was hilly and temperatures were rising!
We danced the World Harmony Run song to warm up (not that warming up was really necessary in this heat!)
All of them were big fans of the Belgium national soccer team, who came third in the recent World Cup.
Inside the castle we met the mayor Mr. Guy Gilloteaux, as well as four local runners from the village.
This town was bombed during the second World War and completely rebuilt, as much as possible in the original style.
Rumor has it that the ghost of Countess Berthe of La Roche inhabits the castle. Every night during summer the town's people put on a show in a castle that tells the tragic story of Countess Berthe.
Our gratitude to the runners from Les Joyeuses Guibolles (meaning 'The Happy Legs') for their enthusiastic participation in the Peace Run.
Between the villages of Les Bannes and Haversin Abhinabha ran into a car rally race that takes place there every year, watched by all the villagers.
In Ciney we were greeted by four runners and a cyclist from running club ARCH, who joined us for 4 kilometres.
