Harita Davies (NZ) from finish of 3100 Mile Race

Harita Davies is one of only eight women to complete the Sri Chinmoy 3100 Mile Self-Transcendence race with two finishes and a best time of 51 days+09:35:20 (in 2019). In a new podcast produced by Nathan Gardner at "We can remake the world" Davies gives an hour-long interview talking about meditation, peace, self-transcendence and the experience of completing the world's longest race. During the interview, Harita gives insights into how meditation can help tap into a deeper part of one's being - an essential aspect in a race as gruelling and challenging as the 3100 Mile Race. She also talks with Nathan about the work of Sri Chinmoy in promoting peace, meditation and running activities. Harita also talks about the support and inspiration she gained from people around the world whilst running the 2019 race as the only woman in the field.

"I feel our state of mind and consciousness can have a direct impact on the world, and through the practise of meditation we can develop a greater awareness of how we can affect the world in a positive way."
