Slovenia 2 October: Križevci - Cankova

Bridges of Peace

Slovenia runners, Austrian runners and the International team meet on the Gornja Radgona bridge that connects Austria and Slovenia over the river Mur

Running into Austria .....

.... and back into Slovenia

A large crowd are waiting for us in Cankova. The former Mayor, a very good friend of the Peace Run, is there to greet us. Several Ukrainians who have been displaced from their homeland are there too.

Ukrainian ladies lead the run forwards.

This is Sasha from Kiev holding the torch. She is 14 and has come with her aunt to live in Slovenia.

This bridge is also a Sri Chinmoy Peace Bridge.
