Events by Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team

Founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1977 to promote the importance of physical fitness as a complement to spiritual growth, the Marathon Team strives to serve the running community according the highest standards. Professional certified courses, frequent aid stations, accurate scoring, and a friendly and supportive atmosphere encourage all runners to achieve their own personal bests. Several countries have chosen our races as the venue for their own national championships, and many national and world records have been set at these events. Over the years the Marathon Team has sponsored a variety of sporting events around the world, including triathlons, masters track meets, cycling races, swim meets and ultra-marathons. The Marathon Team is known for its multi-day ultra-running events, most notably the Self-Transcendence 3,100-mile race held each year in New York. Called the “Everest of Ultra-Running” by The New York Times, it is the longest certified foot race in the world, requiring participants to complete a minimum average of 59 miles a day for up to 52 days in a row. Sri Chinmoy’s philosophy of ‘self-transcendence’ permeates all Marathon Team events. “When we transcend ourselves, we do not compete with others,” he states. “We compete only with our previous achievements. And each time we surpass our previous achievements, we get joy.” "The determination in your heroic effort Will permeate your mind and heart Even after your success or failure Is long forgotten." -Sri Chinmoy, Founder
