The Peace Run is now running across the UK
The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global torch relay that has been taking place every year since 1987.
This year the Peace Torch is being carried on an 8 month continuous journey through all European Countries which started in Bulgaria in March, and will end in Portugal in October.
During more than 30 years of its existence, the Peace Run has visited over 150 countries and touched the lives of millions. Founded by an Indian peace philosopher Sri Chinmoy, the message of the Peace Run is that peace begins with each one of us, and through participating in any way we can all make a contribution to living in a more peaceful and harmonious world.
The International team of 15 runners is now running across the UK. The team arrived on the shores of Scotland from The Netherlands on August 30th, and carries the Peace Torch through Northern Ireland, Ireland, Wales and England over a period of 16 days. In cities, towns, schools and other locations along the route the torch will be received at events and ceremonies dedicated to Peace. The Peace Runners welcome everyone to greet the run, hold the torch and share their dreams for a world enlivened and emboldened by a commitment to real Peace, for all people and all nations.

PEACE POEM BY SRI CHINMOY
O dreamers of peace, come.
Let us walk together.
O lovers of peace, come.
Let us run together.
O servers of peace, come.
Let us grow together.
