Can running lead to enlightenment? Can it transform your life and make you a better human being? This is the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Run, the world’s longest race – where competitors must average 59+ miles a day in the 52-day window … all around a 1/2 mile sidewalk loop in NYC. How does one even train for this race? A champion Navajo ultra-marathoner, a hunter from the Kalahari Bushmen and a Japanese Monk illustrate how we, as human beings, can and have always used running to transcend our limitations and connect ourselves to realities beyond the physical.

#123. Peace Run (Peace Arch – June 10, 2018)

We were honoured to be asked to participate in the Hands Across the Border ceremony at Peace Arch Park for the second time. The Peace Run was prominently recognized on the event’s program, and were the first booth people saw when they entered the park. Hundreds of Scouts stopped by the booth to learn about peace and make crepe paper torches. The event organizers even incorporated the Peace Run into a scavenger hunt for which participants needed to write down the Peace Run’s official motto: “Peace Begins with Me.” 

The event was a celebration of unity between Canadian and American girls and boys Scouts, and featured booths from many inspiring organizations. Peace Runners from both Vancouver and Seattle made the drive to Peace Arch Park, supplying smiles and crepe paper torch-making skills to all.
