The national Peace Run team jogged into Wagga on Wednesday to spread their message of harmony. 

Runners from six nations are en route from Brisbane to Adelaide, covering 3500kms on foot.

The team stopped by North Wagga Public after running from Tumut to talk to the children about peace. 

They carry “a flame of hope” which has travelled the globe. 

“It’s a great feeling to see people of different cultures on different continents who all share the same goodness,” said Nikolaus Drekonja, a runner from Austria. 

He joined the group when they travelled to his country in 2012. 

Students were taught a song and reflected on what peace really means.

The team heads to Albury tomorrow. They started running on May 25 and will arrive in Adelaide on July 4.
