Eighteen hours before the 21st Sri Chinmoy Ten Day Race begins- 12 noon April 19,2016. 47 athletes have arrived in town and await the next sunrise. Four days later 31 runners will join in the 19th Sri Chinmoy Six Day Race. Both races will finish at noon on Friday, April 29. Flushing Meadows Corona Park has been the home of multidays on the mile loop near Meadow Lake for the last 16 years. 

The Ten Day started in 1996 at Wards Island in Manhattan near the Triborough Bridge(RFK Bridge) and featured 15 athletes. The course records for the event include 901 miles by Rimas Jakelaitis(LTH)- 2001) for the men, and 727 miles by Kaneenika Janakova(SLK)-2014 for the ladies.

We hope to post daily totals of each athlete as well as scoreboard updates on this site to show the progression of the runners as they journey along with remarkable energy and diligence. 240 hours will be the goal- to survive and transcend.

Good luck to all the athletes and their family and friends.
