#125. Peace Run – Canada Day (Ottawa, Canada – July 1, 2018)

On Canada Day (July 1, 2018) a small team of local Peace Runners passed the torch to people that they met in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. The simple message of the Peace Run is that peace begins in the heart of each person and then spreads out to the world at large; the team invited those that held the torch to take a moment to wish for peace, reflect on peace or offer a message for peace.

The North American relay began in April in New York City on an over 11.000-mile journey across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The international team of Peace Runners will reach Ottawa on July 25th, 2018 and the relay will conclude in New York in August.

#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.

#118. Finish of 6- & 10-Day Race (New York – April 27, 2018)

The Twenty-First Annual Sri Chinmoy Six-Day Race started on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 12:00 noon, EDT. This race is held concurrently with the Twenty-Third Annual Sri Chinmoy Ten-Day Race which started on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 12:00 noon, EDT. Both races ended on Friday, April 27, 2018 at 12 noon, EDT. The races were previously called The Self-Transcendence Six and Ten-Day Races. Both races are invitational races and entry is based upon the race director’s discretion.
These races feature an international field of runners who come to test their endurance, skill with pacing, and ability to recover from the stress of constantly moving. The competitors run with minimal sleep, all the while trying to accumulate as many miles as possible.
The course is a very flat, scenic, 1k loop in a pleasant park setting near the famous areas of the World’s Fair of 1964 and close to the USTA facility, home of the US Open. There are many patches of green and trees, as well as close proximity to Meadow Lake. Temperatures in April in New York generally vary between 11ºC and 21ºC with extremes at 1ºC and 32ºC. In other words, plan for any conceivable weather condition, including rain and windy conditions.
