Peace Run is the longest relay race with burning torches across more than 140 countries. The mission of the run is to create and spread an atmosphere of friendship, peace, understanding. At the same time overcoming the boundaries between the people of different nations, beliefs and boundaries within ourselves. It is an inspiration for the search for what the word "peace" actually means and how each of us can fulfill it in everyday life. All this is symbolized by the Peace Torch. An international team of runners carries it and passes it on to anyone who wants to join the idea. With the Peace Torch, you can run or hold it for a while and insert your wishes for the world into it. You will join the many prominent personalities and millions of people around the world who have held the torch since the Peace Run in 1987. On August 1, we start on the border with Slovakia and run with a torch to the Ore Mountains! I can do it in 2 weeks, but we will definitely be happy if you join us or meet us on the route ? Good luck running and information about individual days can be found here: https://www.peacerun.org/cz/trasa/ Come and say hello to the runners of the Peace Run, running through your town or village, wait for us in front of the city limits or in front of the town hall and run at least a few steps with the torch.
We will be happy to meet with you on August 6 from 11:00 to 12:00 in the arcade courtyard of the castle in Opočno - join us!
