Koprivnica - Varaždin

Reported by Gianluca Marangon 41.0 km

The day started at Podolice Primary School in Koprivnica.

Dan je započeo u OŠ Podolice u Koprivnici.

The runners were greeted by a big crowd of enthusiastic students.

Trkače je dočekala velika skupina entuzijastičnih učenika.

The principal opened the ceremony with heart-felt words.

Ravnateljica je započela ceremoniju uz srčanu poruku.

Students shared their message of peace through a a rap song. You are cool when you are peaceful :)

Učenici su podjelili poruku mira uz rap pjesmu. Cools si kad si miran :)

The school choir, led by the music teacher, also sang beautifully.

Zbor skole, uz pratnju učitelja glazbenog, je isto predivno pjevao.

Other children expressed their wishes for peace through gorgeous drawings. Peace can be expressed in many ways.

Drugi su učenici podjelili njihove poruke mira uz predivne radove. Mir se moze iskazati na puno načina.

The team introduces themselves.

Tim trkača se predstavio.

Children ran and passed the torch to replicate how the peace runners work as a team to cover all the kilometres in a relay.

Djeca su trčala i dijelila baklju, prikazujući na taj način kako trkači mira uspiju ekipno otrčati svu dnevnu kilometražu kao štafetu.

Then it was clear to everyone :D

Onda je svima bilo jasno :D

Doing the World Harmony Run song is always fun :)

Raditi pokrete za World Harmony Run pjesmu je uvjek zabavno :)

After some dynamic movement, we tried to feel peace inside the heart.

Nakon dinamičnih pokreta, pokušali smo pronaći mir u srcu.

Everyone got a chance to hold the Peace Torch and make a wish for world peace.

Svatko je imao priliku držati Baklju Mira i zaželjeti želju za mir u svijetu.

"When we put our hands together all is possible".

"Kad se male ruke slože sve se može".

Which country will the Peace Run visit next? :)

Kroz koju će državu Trka Mira proći sljedeći put? :)

Thank you Podolice Primary School for such a warm welcome. We will carry your hopes for peace with us.

Hvala OŠ Podolice za ovaj predivni susret. Nositi ćemo vaše poruke mira sa nama.

On the way to the next school.

Na putu prema drugoj školi.

Our next meeting was at Ludbreg Primary School. Here we were met by some eager student-runners who were willing to share some kilometres with us towards the next village (Selnik).

Sljedeća stanica je bila OŠ Ludbreg. Ovdje smo se susreli sa dzacima trkačima koju su bili spremni da trče sa nama do Selnika,

The team did a short presentation of the run.

Tim je naravio kratak uvod o utrci.

With some funny skits to break the ice :)

Sa zabavnim skečevima za probiti led :)

Finding peace before running helps our performance :)

Pronaći mir u sebi prije trčanja pomaze u nasem performansu :)

The principal of the school shared the message of the Peace Run with the students. In 1991, when he was a boy, he ran with the Peace Torch through these same streets of Ludbreg, Now, some 32 years later, he is giving the opportunity to his students to do the same. Thank you for the inspiration.

Ravnatellj OŠ Ludbreg je podjelio poruku Utrke Mira sa učenicima. 1991, kad je bio dječak, i on je trčao kroz Ludbreg sa Bakljom Mira. Sada, nakon 32 godine, on pruža mogućnost njegovim učenicima da čine slično. Hvala na inspiraciji.

The representative of the city council also shared some thoughtful words.

Prestavnik gradske uprave je isto podržao trkače riječima inspiracije.

Thank you City of Ludbreg for sponsoring the runners with a delicious meal.

Hvala Grad Ludbreg sto ste sponsorirali trckače za ukusnim jelom.

In Čakovec the torch was carried by the best athletes of Cakovec Primary School 1 from the border of the city all the way to their school. The principal also runs with us, showing the best example to their students.

U Čakovcu najbolji sportasi 1. Osnovne Skole Cakovec su nosili baklju od ulaza u grad sve do njihove škole. Ravnatelj škole je isto trčao sa nama i time pružio najbolji primjer svojim učenicima.
