Thessaloniki - Gevgelija (MK)

Reported by Apaguha Vesely, Dipavajan Renner 35.0 km

We saw one more time the Mount Olympos - the throne of the gods - from a distance this morning...

...a castle in Thessaloniki...

Nice welcome in Second Junior High School of Sykies / Thessaloniki.

Many thanks to Eleni, who organized the meeting in this school.

...guessing the countries of the runners...

...students performed a nice song...

Our gratitude to Magda, our coordinator in Greece. She organised very nice meetings, food and accommodation for the team. Thank you!

We really liked the poems about Peace.

...prayers for peace...

...we ran together around the school - thanks to the police for escorting us!


A Certificate of Appreciation for the school and a painting by the founder of the Run, Sri Chinmoy.

Children asked us to take a picture with them...

We also took a picture with this very kind lady, who invited us into her house and offered us drinks.

Then we had to say good bye to Greece and ran north towards Skopje. Once more a big Thank You for the hospitality! We will miss Greece!
