Welcome to the 22nd 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.
Athletes are able to test themselves in a format unlike any other ultra-marathon event. In order to meet their goal of 3100 miles in 52 days, they must log an average of 59.6 miles per day. The runners begin at 6 am 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.
