Peace Run to cover 80 nations

Founded in 1987 by Sri Chinmoy, the Peace Run strives to create goodwill among peoples of all nations. The Run does not seek to raise money or highlight any political cause.

Chimnoy’s web site says, “The Peaace Run is a global relay that seeks to promote international friendship and understanding. As a symbol of harmony, runners carry a flaming torch, passing it from hand to hand whilst travelling through over 80 nations around the globe.”
