It was also a special day for those associated with Sri Chinmoy, who entered mahasamadhi 15 years ago on 11 October 2007. Sri Chinmoy's spirit and inner presence can still be felt at this race which he founded back in 1997. The runners continued efforts at self-transcendence is a fitting way to honour Sri Chinmoy's life and own personal example of self-transcendence.
