The Aotearoa New Zealand leg of the 2019 Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run begins at Cape Reinga on Monday March the 4th and ends at the Bluff, Stewart and Ulva Islands on Friday March the 29th.
The team of runners that will take on this epic peace torch relay will be made up a core group of Kiwis that will also include several visiting peace runners from various parts of the world. It will link our country into the first-ever 'Around-The-World Southern Hemisphere' Peace Run which will visit forty-four countries in one continuous route over several months.
