Lublin - Hrubieszów

Reported by Dipavajan Renner 151.0 km

An early start in Lublin with some photoshooting for Polish Television.

...and off we went...

Łęczna was our first appointment: a group of runners awaited us with a great welcome-banner!

...running into the city...

As we arrived on the main square, the mayor and a group of children greeted us...

The mayor passed the troch to the children....

We sang our song for the children...

...a run around the square was a highlight for the kids...

Thank you Łęczna for the heartfelt meeting!

The mayor proofed to be very sportive and joined us for some distance....

...new friends along the road...

We reached Chełm.

Running through the town we arrived in the historic part of the city.

The deputy mayor and a group of kids gave us a warm welcome.

...many smiling faces...

...a really nice refreshment....

...it disappeared in no-time...

Together we continued the Run. The deputy mayor carried the troch...

Good bye Chełm and thanks for the enthusiasm!

Finally we arrived in Hrubieszów. Local runners joined us for quite a long Run through the city...

The Peace Run was invited to participate in a memorial cermony at the cementary of Hrubieszów.

September 1st marks 75 years of the outbreak of World War II, which started in Poland in 1939.

...reflective moments...

The mayor of Hrubieszów spoke....

...followed by our Peace Run Team....

It was our last day in Poland. Again a big "Thank You" for the hospitality and all the nice meetings. It was a real pleasure to run in your country. We are looking forward to come back!
