South Africa 20 October: Cape of Good Hope - Cape Town

Southern African Run kicks off in Cape Town

The southern most point of the Cape Peninsula, the Cape of Good Hope has been known for ages to mariners as the Cape of Storms. As we gathered there to start this out longest African Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run prayed that their would be a storm of peace sweeping through Africa and the world.

Our multinational team were excited at the prospect of our journey through Africa. It was so windy that the torch just blew out!

The first run from the southernmost point.

This ostrich made a quick exit but another was quite friendly.

Refilling the torch!
