On the following day, a team of Peace Runners took part in Dubrovnik's New Year 10 km race. The runners were interviewed by local TV and were able to share the message of the Peace Run founder Sri Chinmoy - that the Peace Run aspires to unite people from different backgrounds through running and humanity’s shared wish for a more peaceful world.

Is the oneness-bridge
Between my satisfaction
And the world’s satisfaction.”
