#206. Screening of ‘Challenging Impossibility’: A Story of Inspiration (Bogdanci, Macedonia)

A screening of “Challenging Impossibility”, the third in three months, was held in Bogdanci, the second smallest town in the south of Macedonia, near the Greek border.

The people at the public culture house (comprising a theater, gallery, and library) were especially kind, with the manager going out of their way to ensure a pleasant experience for attendees. Despite the daylong rain across the country and the town’s small population of 5000, turnout was limited. Nevertheless, those who did come seemed genuinely delighted to watch the movie and spent time exploring Sri Shinmoy’s books.

The manager delivered a captivating introduction, surprising everyone by sharing their recent venture into meditation and Sri Shinmoy’s teachings. Just a few months ago, the public library they oversee received a donation of Sri Shinmoy’s books from the organizing team.

Welcome to the 25th Annual Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race. Called ‘The Mount Everest of ultramarathons’ by The New York Times, this is the longest certified footrace in the world.

Along the way, they may also set new world records and gain spiritual insights.

Athletes are able to test themselves in a format unlike any other ultra-marathon event. In order to meet their goal of 3100 miles (4989km) in 52 days, they must log an average of 59.6 miles (95.9 km) per day. The runners begin at 6 a.m. and run for extended periods throughout the day, taking breaks as needed. If they want to, they can continue as late as 12 midnight when the course closes for the night. After completing the race, runners have the option of continuing on to complete 5000km.
