3100 Race continues even in a heavy New York Downpour

New York Daily News carry a short article – No prize for 14 runners – only Self-Transcendence

“I get a thrill from being out here,” said Suprabha Beckjord, 52, of Washington, D.C. – the only woman and only American participating in this year’s race.

“It’s a [dream] to be able to achieve a very long distance. It’s something we can only accomplish with determination and willpower,” said Beckjord, who has averaged 57.6 miles a day.

The gruelling race as well as being a great test of stamina, honors the race’s founder, Sri Chinmoy.
