Great Britain 25 June: Wem - Hereford

We woke up very well rested thanks to the Manager at the Hampton Hotel's generosity...

Our other team stayed in a small bed and breakfast, where Allison took wonderful care of us. Thank you so much for your hospitality Allison!

A couple of runners shared some laughs early in the morning before we started running...


Hopefully she was a good jumper...or else it was many wet miles...

It's always nice to see animals sharing harmony!

The countryside was gorgeous and the mountains looming in the background create a grandeur unique to Great Britain.

We were prepared for more rain...

So many wonderful people have spontaneously held the torch along the road throughout our journey. Thank you for your wishes for harmony and your enthusiasm!

The traditional manors and castles make you feel part of something very old and prestigious.

We skipped the Fish and Chips...

Paul Radcliffe, a Ranger at Queensland Country Park welcomed us...

In 1935, this shovel was used by Queen Mary to dedicate a tree of her own.

Local artists are carving many different types of animals to educate children about which creatures are native to this region and which are not.

A structure was built for people to enjoy nature and contemplation...

Here is our tree, dedicated to Peace and Harmony, and in memory of the founder, Sri Chinmoy.

Everyone pitched in to give the tree a solid foundation.

Paul gave us a tour around the park, which included a spectacular view of Hereford and even a glimpse of the Wales border in the distance.

Our runners from California were very excited to find a grove of Redwoods growing in the middle of the park.

Thank you Paul and Queensland Country Park for your efforts to preserve nature and harmony, we hope to come back many times in the future.

Someone missed his afternoon tea...

Twenty's Plenty

Amalendu from Australia seems to think the banner is a Didgeridoo.

Later in the night we said goodbye to Ilvaka, one of our runners from Czech-Republic. Thank you for being a part of our team and running so many miles!

Hereford Cathedral stands tall above everything in the city...

Reverend Canon Chris Pullin accepts the torch and tells us a brief history of the Cathedral.

A choir from Wales held the torch and sang the world harmony run song with us. Their voices were amazing and reverberated all throughout the church.

A local artist recently added a few stained glass windows that we found incredibly beautiful.

St. Ethelbert's body was brought to Hereford, and many miracles were said to have occured on his shrine.

Thank you for sharing the beautiful Hereford Cathedral with us and also for the harmony you create in your community.

Ta ta for now!
