The Twenty-Second Annual Sri Chinmoy Ten Day Race started today, Monday, April 17 at 12:00 noon, EDT. Forty or so runners began the 240 hour non-stop journey today in Flushing Meadow Park in Queens, New York.

Utpal Marshall has been trying to capture something of the spirit of the event in a pre-race visit to the Park yesterday. Talking to runners and organisers he brings the event to life for those of us unable to attend with his daily videos. His latest video, I feel Ready For It are the words of World Runner Jesper Olsen who returns to New York to hopefully improve on his last performance here.

We wish all the runners, crew and organisers a great and fulfilling race.

  1. Thank you for the good PR on this historic event!
    I shall try to send a short “on course” update or two when I am there in a day (6 day starts Friday). We all wish Dr. Abichal Kelvin was in New York running/ announcing/ helping! You may know that the most famous handler/ helper in the world, Alan Young of Scotland, will be at the 6 and 10 day– then jetting back to Europe to help at Hungary EMU 6 day– then back to New York to assist William Sichel in the world’s longest ultra, the Sri Chinmoy 3100 mile!

  2. I saw Alan at the recent British Ultrafest in Crawley. He said he’s also going to the Brugg 24 hour in September. He has a busy schedule this year. Best wishes for the 6 day.
