Great weather once again on this exciting day which started with a crowd of over 8000 devout Muslim locals celebrating their Eid Mubarak across the street from the race camp. Despite the huge crowds gathered for over two hours it was a very peaceful and friendly atmosphere with some people inquiring about our 3100 mile race. During the day three runners crossed the 2000 mile mark: Kaneenika, Nirbhasa and Stutisheel. Ashprihanal passed the 2600 mile point which leaves him less than 500 miles to go to finish the race. At his current pace, if all goes well, not only will he break the current world record of 41 days and 8 hours but he would also go under 41 days, which has been unimaginable in the history of this race so far. 

In the photos above and video below we see some of the runners making their way through the crowds of peaceful worshippers of Eid.
