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.
Donation Check Presented to Janice Melnick from Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team

For the past 4 years the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team has donated the proceeds from their November 5K/10K Race to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The Team has been sponsoring races in the Park since the mid 70s and feel that the donations will help with Park expenses. It is the Teams hope that this race would inspire larger race organizers around the New York area to do a similar race for the Park systems, if they are not doing so already.
