A TEAM of runners on a mission to promote world peace made a pit stop in Maryborough at the weekend

The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a non-political, non-religious and non-commercial global relay that aims to promote international friendship and understanding.

The runners are currently doing the Australian leg - a 150,000km circumnavigation of the continent - and are carrying messages of support from the Chief Minister of the ACT to swap with letters of greeting from each mayor and state premier.

The letter swap is aimed at connecting the nation with its capital.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell thanked the organisation for including Maryborough in its run.
