'Chicken Run' - a fun illustration of how far the 3100 Mile runners have come!

Nirbhasa is originally from Ireland but currently lives in Reykjavik, Iceland. He is an enthusiastic multi-day runner, having completed four times the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race - the longest race in the world.
It's hard to grasp the magnitude of 3100 Mile race. Fortunately, the town of Chicken, Alaska (population 17) happens to lie exactly 3100 miles away from the finish line in Queens NY. So if the race were to start in Chicken and finish in New York, how far would the runners be towards their goal today? Currently they are on day 28 out of 52.
