Nirbhasa Magee

Nirbhasa Magee, who finished the 2020 edition of the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile race was featured in an article in the Meath Chronicle. Nirbhasa is a native of Summerhill, Co Meath in Ireland and currently lives in Iceland. After the race, he spoke to the paper about the challenges and experiences of this unique race. He also explains how practising meditation with Sri Chinmoy opened up many new possibilities, which led him to seek a sense of self-transcendence in both meditation and ultra-distance running. Speaking of the race, Magee said:

"You actually learn a great deal about yourself, participating in this race, which was probably the hardest of the four I've done. It's almost like your a different person coming out of the race than you are going into it, there's a definite process of personal change and transformation that takes place, a process of personal growth. You really have to expand yourself to get past the problems that you face."
