From race directors to course monitors, all Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team races are staffed by its own volunteers since the Team’s inauguration in 1977 by its founder and fitness advocate, Sri Chinmoy.

Today, the SCMT organizes over 1,700 races a year in 27 countries across 4 continents, ranging from short kids fun-runs, to marathons to the world’s longest certified road race – the annual Self-Transcendence 3100 mile race (yes, 3,100 miles, it’s not a typo).  We love running and putting on races – we hope you enjoy the friendly atmosphere we provide, free of commercial sponsors.

We live in uncertain times.  If we are forced to cancel this event owing to circumstances beyond our control, including, but not limited to:

New or modified COVID-19 regulations/restrictions imposed by park officials or city or state governments;
Unsafe conditions in the park, such as excessive snow or ice on the roadways, or other severe weather related conditions;
the event will be converted to a virtual one.  Registered participants will still receive race giveaways and finisher medals in the mail upon completion of the virtual race, and trophies will be mailed to winners as per the awards breakdown above.
