About the author:

Rupantar has been the race director of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team since 1985, having been asked by Sri Chinmoy to serve in that capacity. As well as working on the big races the US Marathon Team organise each year - the 3100 Mile Race and the Six and 10 Day Race - he also spends a considerable amount of time archiving the Marathon Team's 40 year history on this website.

Sri Chinmoy 6 & 10 Day Races cancelled for 2021: we are sad to announce this news but in the interest of all the runners who would travel from Europe and outside New York City for this late April race, we want to remain cognizant and respectful of the logistical and potential public health ramifications. We will be back, stronger together.
