The Longest Race in the World
- Hi all,
I was tickled to see our own Self-Transcendence 3,100-Mile Race is
mentioned in the current issue of Runner's World Magazine, November
2006, page 32, "Ask Miles" ("Human Race" department):
What's the longest race--- not counting relays--- in the world?

The longest certified road race is called the Self-Transcendence
3,100-Mile Race held in Queens, New York, and annually draws about a
dozen competitors. There, runners try to run 5,649 laps of a .5488-
mile course within 51 days--- to do that, they must average a
whopping 60.7 miles every day.
