- It's name speaks for itself. All who have spent any time in and about
the Sri Chinmoy center know all to well that the 47 is the most
important running event the Sri Chinmoy marathon team puts on.
Now of course it competes for participants with those who would rather
run the shorter less challenging distance of the August marathon. Yet
it has been around for 30 years now and seems in no danger of disappearing
any time soon.
The race came about the year Sri Chinmoy turned 47 and for all, the
number itself carries a special significance. Running and completing
the race however is no joke. There were a few this year, who have been
running the race since the beginning. Their stories are unique, as
are all who try and transcend themselves running on the roads.
