border - Sofia

Reported by Dipavajan Renner 66.0 km

Good morning Bulgaria! Another country, new fun!

Our first meeting brought us to a park in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. We met many athletes who gathered for their weekly 5 km race.

After the presentation we joined the race! Quite a dynamic start for the day...

A little later we had another meeting in the same park:

A special cultural program went on, sponsored by the Russian Embassy in Bulgaria.

...we went on stage...

...an excellent singer!

...we passed the torch to the spectators....

Thank you Sofia for this heartfelt start of the Peace Run in Bulgaria!
