About the author:

Rupantar has been the race director of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team since 1985, having been asked by Sri Chinmoy to serve in that capacity. As well as working on the big races the US Marathon Team organise each year - the 3100 Mile Race and the Six and 10 Day Race - he also spends a considerable amount of time archiving the Marathon Team's 40 year history on this website.

ashprihanal-j-43211.jpgGlobo TV, Brazil's largest network, produced a 12 minutes feature about the 2019 race for their popular Fantastico programme, which often attracts between 35 and 40 million viewers. During the course of the summer, a Brazilian TV crew came on many different days and filmed the race from every different perspective: during the heat of the afternoon, the start of the race, even during pouring rain.
