Slovenia 20 April: Murska Sobota - Velika Polana

a relaxing Easter Sunday

Again a big "Thank You" to the "Penzion Letališče" for hosting our entire team!

....first steps out of Murska Sobota. It was an easy easter Sunday morning - a bit of rain but great running weather...

A very peaceful countryside...

..lonely km...

Local runners joined in....

...and we reached Bukovniško Jezero, a recreation resort with a nice lake.

The mayor of Dobrovnik welcomed our team.

We received nice gifts!

Good luck is guaranteed!

A group picture....

..and the mayor led the runners on their lap around the lake.

The adventure park in Bukovniško Jezero opened its doors for us!

Skill and a brave heart was needed....

...spiderman...

After the fun we were treated for a lunch in Dobrovnik - including musical entertainment by the son of the mayor!

Also the wife of the mayor received the torch. She was several times World Champion in bowling!
Thank you Dobrovnik for the hospitality!

...the centre of the city (under the oversized Easter - egg!)

Th mayor and his sun joined us for quite a distance...

The mayor received our team shirt and we offered us the community T-shirt in return!

The shirt fits perfectly into the country side...

Welcome to Lendava!

The deputy mayor and some spectators welcomed us on the main square.

Thank you for the welcome and the refreshments!

The final stretch of the day. Local runners carried the torch all the way to Velika Polana.

...the last steps...

..our master of ceremony...

...and the musical entertainment...

The mayor welcomed us...

...and passed the torch to the citizens...

We received nice caps!

Thank you Velika Polana for the hospitality!
