In this extreme race, an international field of runners come to test their endurance, skill with pacing, and ability to recover from the stress of constantly moving. The Six-Day Race starts on Wednesday, April 23 at 12:00 noon, EDT and finishes at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, April 29, 2013. This race is held concurrently with The Self Transcendence Ten-Day Race.

These races feature an international field of runners who come to test their endurance, skill with pacing, and ability to recover from the stress of constantly moving. The competitors run with minimal sleep, all the while trying to accumulate as many miles as possible.
The course is a very flat, scenic, 1 mile loop (Certification Code NY11008JG) in a pleasant park setting near the famous areas of the World’s Fair of 1964 and close to the USTA facility, home of the US Open. There are many patches of green and trees, as well as close proximity to Meadow Lake. Temperatures in April in New York generally vary between 52º and 71º with extremes at 33º and 90º. In other words, plan for any conceivable weather condition, including rain and windy conditions.
