Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team
The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team was founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1977, and his vision, inspiration, encouragement and intuition have been the guiding force behind its growth into what is today the world's largest organizer of endurance events. His innate understanding of the limitless potential that lies within each one of us led him to conceive of endurance events that to others seemed beyond the bounds of human possibility. The team organizes the International Self-Transcendence Marathon-Schwimmen, the 3100 Mile Self-Transcendence Race, the 12-hour indoor pool swim in Zurich, the 9 km Australia Annual National Capital Swim, and the 12-hour pool swim in Zalaegerszeg, Hungary. Members of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team members are encouraged and supported to expand their own capacities in participating in and organizing events.
