Waiouru - Taupo

Reported by Daniel Rubin 112.0 km

Thanks so much to Ross, of Tawhiri Waiouru, for his support of the Peace Run. We were very grateful for the comfortable stay and Ross's hospitality.

Running to Waioru School in the verdant countryside.

Thanks to Project Tongariro for bringing a beautiful Kowhai which we dedicated as a Peace Tree.

Students from Tongariro School welcomed us with great enthusiasm.

Recently elected Head Boy, Warren, and prefect, Jaro, extended hospitality and warmth to the team.

Students give quick answers, such as "being kind", when asked what "peace" means to them.

Tongariro School graciously invited the team for tea.
