Great Britain 23 June: Canterbury - Dover

Today we started our journey at Pyne Smith School in Canterbury.

It was a glorious sunny day and the children joined us for a vigorous lap of the playground.

On our way to the next school one of our runners tried to escape over the old city walls.

The next school was St Peters. The children filled the assembly hall to the brim to hear about our adventures. We shared our motto with the children Harmony begins with meand they shared some messages with us……

After forming a giant circle in the playground and passing the torch, the children cheered excitedly as their teachers ran a lap with the torch.

Canterbury is an idyllic city steeped in history.

It is home to the most impressive cathedral in England. The chaplin, Reverend Peter Jacobs, took us on a whistle stop tour, blessed the torch and ran with us.

Then it was off through the magical tiny backroads of Kent. In the tiny village of Petham we were greeted by the local school and two guinea pigs called Bramble and Biscuit.

The countryside was spectacular.

For runners this is paradise – quiet country lanes winding through the rolling countryside. It was so beautiful that some runners were swept off their feet!

We saw goats, cows, sheep and some friendly horses. On our approach to Dover a boy spontaneously joined in with the run on his way home from school.

Finally, at around 7pm, we ran past Dover Castle and down the hill to the very tip of the United Kingdom where we were greeted by the English Channel.

Some of us could not stop and submerged ourselves in the cooling waters
