"The stormy life can be braved only by the heart's sunny meditations." - Sri Chinmoy

Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team

A firm believer in the necessity of physical fitness, Sri Chinmoy not only helped to pioneer marathons and ultra-marathons, but has competed in many such events himself.

Inspired by Sri Chinmoy’s own dedication to long-distance running, in the 1970s the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team was founded to promote fitness through running. Since then, the Team has held thousands of races, from Masters track meets to marathons to multi-day races, including the world’s longest certified race of 3,100 miles.

Inspired by Sri Chinmoy’s belief in the unlimited potential of man, hundreds of thousands of participants have pushed their own limits and uncovered their own potential though the Team’s races.
