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.

screen_shot_2016-05-25_at_12.57.59_pm.pngNYCRUNS is a popular website that lists races in the New York area.  We were pleasantly surprised to see the 6 & 10 Day Races listed. Although this race draws most of its runners from outside the U.S., multiday running has a rich history in the New York area. See Sam Shaw's article in Harpers Magazine for a detailed history of multi-day running (including our 3,100 Mile Race) and also our archives for the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team's contributions to ultra running.  Did you know that the New York Road Runners Club hosted a 6 Day Race at what was then Downing Statium on Randall's Island in 1983 and 1984?

Here is what NYCRUNS had to say:

"If you’re late to the start for this event, hang around and take part in the six-day run starting four days after this race (i.e. 10-Day Race). We’d like to provide you a capsule summary of what Sri is all about, but it’s making our head hurt. Perhaps we’ll do an article on this fascinating and unique event in the future. For now, check out Sri Chimnoy’s web site, and if you do one of its events, let us know!" For complete article...
