A delegation of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run joined the event to share the Peace Torch among athletes and organizers to offer a moment of Oneness and Peace. We were honoured to be part of the first edition of this important event.

The marathon is initiated by KONI (National Sports Committee of Indonesia). Bali was chosen as a wonderful venue for the first Indonesia International Marathon. Known as the Island of the Gods, Bali offers a range of beautiful natural wonders together with interesting and distinctive cultural customs. The event showed Bali’s exotic tropical & natural charms that will make Indonesia International Marathon a truly unique race.
“Tembus Batas Maksimal” or Through the Limit is the tagline of the event, it is an encouragement to all involved to reach new heights.
We offer our deepest gratitude to the organizing staff for allowing us to share a moment of Peace and Oneness among the participants.
