Eighteen hours await the 21st running of the Sri Chinmoy Ten Day Race, one of our premier events. 47 athletes have arrived from many countries to take part in this unique event, one of the longest running competitions on the calendar. 240 hours have to be dealt with, as the multi-day runners move along the certified one-mile loop in the famous Flushing Meadows Corona Park, which has been hosting our multidays for the past 16 years. The race starts on Tuesday, April 19 at 12 noon. Four days later 31 runners will join the fray in the 19th running of the Sri Chinmoy Six Day Race

The Ten Day started in 1996 at Wards Island in Manhattan near the Triborough Bridge (RFK Bridge) and featured 15 athletes. The course records for the event include 901 miles by Rimas Jakelaitis (LTH) in 2001 for the men, and 727 miles by Kaneenika Janakova (SLK) in 2014 for the ladies.

We hope to post daily results and screen shots of the gifted athletes as they attempt to garner as many miles as possible. We also offer best wishes to the brave runners as they seek to find out what they can do this year. 240 hours will be the goal- to survive and transcend. You never know what you have until you try.

Good luck to all the athletes and their family and friends.
