The 12 runners from seven countries covered 91 miles that day, according to media coordinator Prakhara Harter. The athletes ran along Highway 1 from Santa Maria to Paso Robles, where they stopped to pass the peace torch and speak at a Boys and Girls Club.

Harter said the runners meet with various schools and youth organizations along the route to share the message of peace, unity, and friendship. Although Harter said the runners did not meet with any organizations in Santa Maria, they stopped in San Diego, Ventura, and stayed a night at the Santa Maria Inn.
