About the author:

Tejvan organises short-distance running and cycling races for the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team in his home city of Oxford. He is also a very good cyclist, having won the National hill climb championships in 2013 and finished 3rd in the National 100 Mile Time Trials in 2014.

A day of heavy rain did little to dampen the spirits of the runners. Fortunately, good weather is forecast to return for this weekend and into next week, which will see the day's top runner Andrea Marcato get close to the ultimate finish.

Ashprihanal Aalto managed 65.8 miles.

Ananda-Lahari Zuscin had his best day since the first week as he passed 2,000 miles in style.

It is Ananda-Lahari's 18th race and in the interview we can see why he is so keen to keep returning to the race which has given him so many experiences of self-transcendence and personal growth

After about five days of decent dry weather we are now confronted with some pretty heavy rain again. But the runners are still upbeat and the helpers are trying to stay dry and warm.


The runners every day go around the same block. But, there is always a new perspective to see the race. The runners can also always find new things to observe and appreciate, especially as autumn draws in.

Counting in the rain.
