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.

As we enter the final few weeks of the race, all runners are steadily accumulating miles as they settle into their own daily rhythms. Andrea Marcato led the pack yesterday with another 70+ mile day. As he observed in an interview the end is in sight, but anything can happen in this race and he continues to take the race lap by lap and focus on what he needs to do for each moment.

After losing ground mid-race, Stutisheel Lebedev continues to catch up to the daily average needed to finish. Another 65-mile day yesterday brings him closer to the goal.

Andrea talks about his race so far and how he becomes aware of how the race is more than just his personal effort.

Kaneenika Janakova is the women’s world record holder in the 3100 mile race yet she is having a different kind of race this year having to walk most of it due to some physical problems. But she has already covered over 2100 miles and quite happily keeps going as she plans to go the whole 52 days.

Andrea Marcato reaches 2,900 miles and a short interview with Arpan.
