About the event
Welcome to the 21st Annual Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race. Called 'The Mount Everest of ultramarathons' by The New York Times, this is the longest certified footrace in the world.
Athletes are able to test themselves in a format unlike any other ultra-marathon event. In order to meet their goal of 3100 miles in 52 days, they must log an average of 59.6 miles per day. The runners begin at 6 am and run for extended periods throughout the day, taking breaks as needed. If they want to, they can continue as late as 12 midnight when the course closes for the night.

Dispatches from race directors Sahishnu Szcsesiul and Rupantar LaRusso.
It was less humid today; the breezes arrived later in the afternoon. The runners were delayed a little this morning by the thousands of Muslims celebrating Ramadan being complete. The gathering on the close-by field of Joe Austin Ballfield spilled out onto the sidewalks which are the perennial course for the 3100 Mile Race. Just before 10:00am the crowds of people dispersed and the dust settled down. The runners continued on their journey. Vasu Duzhiy again led all runners with 66.4 miles. He is a full twenty miles ahead of second place runner Nirbhasa Magee. Kaneenika Janakova leads the four ladies with 63.6 miles. Harita Davies and Yolanda Holder each had 60.36 mile days to maintain their position and average mileage for the Race. No positions changed today, but eight of the 10 made it past 60 miles.
Race director Rupantar LaRusso captures some of the atmosphere of this unique race.View all videos on our Vimeo page
