Sri Chinmoy

Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) – 3100 mile race founder. He dedicated his life to fostering peace, starting in the heart of each individual. He felt that peace could be manifested through silent meditation, music, poetry, art – and sports.

He especially had a fondness for running and felt that running provided an excellent opportunity for people to challenge themselves and overcome their pre-conceived limitations – what he referred to as self-transcendence.
