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.

"World's Ultimate Running Races"  is published by HarperCollins and presents "500 races, 101 Countries, Choose your adventure". The Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race is referenced twice in the book: pages 6 and 193.

The book offers to the adventurer in us a seemingly unlimited opportunity for self-transcendence.  I love this book as it shows that the human spirit is truly unlimited, if just given the opportunity. And these 500 races present many opportunities.
