Today we are meeting the First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford.

The First Minister appears from the Welsh Parliament building to meet the runners.

A short 'Peace Walk' to the nearby Peace Statue.

The First Minister shares some thoughts on Peace, reminding us that Wales has a long history of striving for Peace.

Students from the nearby school, Mount Stuart Primary, join the First Minister and the Peace Run team for a photograph with the Peace Statue.

The First Minister passes the torch to the students, who will relay it to their school.

We have visited Mount Stuart Primary a few times over the past 20 years.

Lunch in the Mumbles, an area by the sea in Swansea.
