From 1964 to 2007, spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy participated in a number of athletic activities, among these marathon and ultramarathon running as a component of his philosophy of self-transcendence. In 1976, in close collaboration with his students, he founded the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team. Since then, the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team has organized marathons, ultramarathons, triathlons and shorter distance races in over 26 countries around the world.

Self-transcendence gives us joy in boundless measure. When we transcend ourselves, we do not compete with others. We do not compete with the rest of the world, but at every moment we compete with ourselves.
