The race was initiated by founder Sri Chinmoy, who himself ran several marathons and ultra-marathons. These ultra day races offer competitors and helpers an opportunity to transcend their own limitations – both physical, mental and spiritual.
“Self-transcendence gives us joy in boundless measure. When we transcend ourselves, we do not compete with others. We do not compete with the rest of the world, but at every moment we compete with ourselves. “
Excerpt from The Vision-Sky Of California by Sri Chinmoy.
