Oxford - Bedford

Reported by Devashishu Torpy 66.0 km

In Oxford the runners took a quick tour of the town to see the marvellous old college buildings

Our day of running began at the Town Hall in the heart of Oxford

We were greeted by the Lord Mayor

And invited in to this magnificent building

The Mayor joined us in singing the World Harmony Run song

Then off we ran into the picturesque English countryside

In the afternoon we arrived at the Japanese Buddhist pagoda in Milton Keynes

In the late afternoon we arrived at our final destination - the city of Bedford
