The multi national team assembles for the British Peace Run 2014 in the town of Ipswich.

The Mayor of Ipswich, Councillor Hamil Clarke welcoms the Peace Run to the Town Hall.

The youngest member of the team, Uhaina from Mexico, introduces herself.

Now that we are England there will be lots of tea!

Irena from Prague is given the honour of holding the 400 year old mace, conferred upon the city by Royalty.

Children at Sproughton Primary School greet the runners.

Children aphorisms on the subject of Peace.

A birds eye view.

The local coordinator, Sanjaya Martin Spettigue (centre), has a brief moment of rest and a picnic lunch with his son Mridanga and good friend Aryavan.

The runners stand with the World Harmony Peace Statue, which was inaugurated in July 2013, on the previous visit of the team to Chantry Park.

An overwhelming welcome by the children of St Joseph's College Prep School in Ipswich.

The children had made their own flags of countries from around the globe.

Dr Martin Hine, head of the Prep school, gives the runners a very warm welcome.

Can you guess where this runner comes from?

Dr Martin Hine, who has become a very good friend of the Peace Run, receives a Certificate of Appreciation from the team.

The new Peace runners carry the torch onto the school's playing fields.
