Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run

Peace Run - Southern Africa

In 1987 Sri Chinmoy inaugurated the Peace Run. The Peace Run is a grassroots relay for peace where a flaming Olympic style torch is carried by runners across cities, countries and continents. In Southern Africa we have found that the Peace Run is universally loved and accepted. Over the 10 or so years that we have been organising the southern African Peace Runs we have been privilaged to be able to run in most of the region's countries, some on many occasions.  From 2003 - 2012 the Peace Run was also called the World Harmony Run.

Each day on the Peace Run the runners post a report of who they visited and what they did. If you are interested in following our Southern African adventures on the Peace Run click on the links below for each country. The full Peace Run website can be found at
