The runners were met at the bottom of Mount Snowdon by Mrs Owen of Gwynedd County Council, and Lord Elis Thomas the presiding officer of the Welsh Parliament. The runners then set off up the slopes of Mount Snowdon with others following in a train. There was a light hearted race with the runners trying to beat the train to the top ( which they succeeded in doing)

Sri Chinmoy founded the World Harmony Run in 1986; many other natural monuments and landmarks have also been dedicated to world peace and harmony, such as this Sri Chinmoy Harmony Bridge in Austria and Slovenia
