The 2013 Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race, June 16 - August 7
The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team is proud to offer the 17th Annual Self-Transcendence 3,100 Mile Race. Called 'The Mount Everest of ultramarathons' by The New York Times, this is the longest certified footrace in the world.
In this grand test of endurance and survival, a small group of athletes attempt to complete 5,649 laps of a .5488 mile course (883 meters) around a city block in Queens, New York in the time span of 52 days - an amazing challenge. This is the longest certified footrace in the world; runners must average almost 60 miles a day to finish within the 52 day limit. The serious athlete must have tremendous courage, physical stamina, concentration and the capacity to endure fatigue, boredom and minor injuries. (Certificate Code: NY12013JG)

The 3,100 Mile Race is included in Richard Hoad and Paul Moore's book, The World's Toughest Endurance Challenges:
"As the first commuters set off on their way to work in the New York borough of Jamaica, Queens, the race begins. The athletes run past the traffic, the school children, the homeless, mothers with pushchairs...the list is endless. But for 52 days of the year the competitors of the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile race become part of Jamaica..."
