Can running lead to enlightenment? Can it transform your life and make you a better human being? This is the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Run, the world’s longest race – where competitors must average 59+ miles a day in the 52-day window … all around a 1/2 mile sidewalk loop in NYC. How does one even train for this race? A champion Navajo ultra-marathoner, a hunter from the Kalahari Bushmen and a Japanese Monk illustrate how we, as human beings, can and have always used running to transcend our limitations and connect ourselves to realities beyond the physical.
