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.
With but one day remaining, Harita Davies and Yolanda Holder have the opportunity of a lifetime- a finish of 3100 miles- beckoning them. Harita needs 86 laps (47.1968 miles), to reach the goal in her first try. Yolanda Holder, whose mountains seemed to be taller than those of her comrades in running shoes the last three weeks, has but one long day with 109 lap(59.8192 miles) to be walked along with her smiles, which will get bigger as the Goal approaches. Good luck to both ladies as they have transcended their ability to endure and perform so well in the pressure of an 18-hour day. Harita is aiming for a finish between 7:00 and 8:00 pm (1900 - 2000 hours). Yolanda is projected to reach 3100 miles at around 11:15 pm. Meanwhile, Smarana Puntigam reached 65.3 miles to lead all athletes today.
