The Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race

15 June - 6 August
Queens New York

The world's longest certified road race, taking place from 6am to midnight over 52 days.

About the event

The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team is proud to offer the 18th 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 (Certificate Code: NY12013JG).

The race consists of 5,649 laps of a .5488 mile (883 meter) course, to be completed within 52 days. Runners must average almost 60 miles a day to finish within the time limit. The serious athlete must have tremendous courage, physical stamina, concentration and the capacity to endure fatigue, boredom and minor injuries.

Spirit of a Runner - a documentary

From filmmaker Jessie Beers-Altman, this is the most in-depth documentary about the 3100 Mile Race made yet. The race follows 13-time finisher Suprabha Beckjord as she aims to complete the 2008 edition of the race. Spirit of a Runner challenges our definition of possibility, as it explores the enduring capacity of the human heart.
