2022 Sep 21stCoverage of the 3100 Mile Race
On 4 September, 12 intrepid runners began the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race around the famous 0.5488 mile loop in Jamaica, Queens, New York. Conceived of as both a physical and spiritual journey, the race allows athletes to test themselves in a format unlike any other ultra-marathon. In order to meet their goal of 3100 miles in 52 days, they must log an average of 59.6 miles per day.
The race attracts a range of visitors and supporters who come to soak up the atmosphere of the gruelling test of self-transcendence. Recently, the race was visited by His Excellency Kay Rala Xanana Gusmão the former Prime Minister and President of East Timor. View daily report of this visit.
After day 17, eight of the runners had passed 1,000 miles - nearly one third of the way to their ultimate goal. The leading two men Andrea Marcato and Ashprihanal Aalto are separated by just 17 miles. Whilst the leading two women Huang Lan Yang and Susan Marshall are separated by just three miles. The race is set for a fascinating conclusion, yet the real essence of the race cannot be measured in mileage and placings, but the inner spirit of self-transcendence felt by the runners, helpers and supporters. If you are in the vicinity of Queens, do feel free to drop by.
