Canada 4 July: Calgary, AB - Rosedale, AB
This morning we had to face a moment of sadness because three runners on the men's team left - Pujari, Scott and Josef. Thank you gentlemen for your most valued participation! We are looking forward to seeing you again on the run somewhere!
Staff members were just great and some came from the same country as our runners. They even took a run around while the kids were cheering.
We all came outside when it stopped raining to plant a peace tree in the very heart of the town. Terry is a real hands-on mayor!
Soon a plaque on a concrete base will be installed at this tree which is in prominent location in town.
Some local journalist and family members of our candian runners were there. What an exciting moment!
Drumheller is world famous for its dinosaur museum. Many precious fosils were found in this area. So the team spent the rest of the day learning about the Earth's mysterious past.
Believe it or not this young man from Drumheller saw the map on our van and came to tell us that he was preparing for a 80km trail running in the mountains. Canadians are fit.
We finished the day at 11 Bridges Campground in Rosedale. Lory the owner was thrilled to hear about our journey through North America. Many thanks for your generous participation in the Peace Run by offering us campsites.
