The 23rd edition of the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race ended at midnight tonight, after three runners finished the .5488 of a mile loop (883.2079 meters) a total of 5649 times. Smarana Puntigam touched down just before 10:00 am to lead the group. The Austrian record-holder has now finished eight times in 10 attempts. Less than six hours later Harita Davies reached her second completion of the event, moving up to 34th overall and fifth of eight ladies who have run this race. She broke her previous best by nearly six hours, and still maintains New Zealand’s fastest time, man or woman. Todor Dimitrov, ‘El Capitan’, finished 3100 miles in his first attempt, while overcoming tough odds, injuries, sickness and being 32miles behind pace with only six days to go. Ushika Muckenhumer bravely reached 2,777.47 miles before midnight, grateful for the experience.
Thanks, folks, for following our race around the block. May all transcend their previous achievements.
