A handful of British Runners at the Sri Chinmoy 6 & 10 Day Race in New York are struggling against inner and outer forces in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens. After battling near freezing temperatures for the first few days of the 10 day race, the weather turned wetter last night and more rain was forecast for today. The worlds only annual 10 day road race draws runners from all over the world to run loops on a 3/4 mile course day and night in their bid to accumulate as many miles as they can in six or ten days.
Karteek Clarke from Cornwall, 13 time Channel swimmer, is in 14rh place and currently has 408 miles after eight days in the 10 day event in what is looking like his best performance having run the race for the last four years.
British based Petra Kasperova (pictured above) is currently in second place in the six day race, fourth overall, with 233 miles, just 15 miles behind the leader while Kate Condon is in 7th place with 206 miles. In the men’s 6 day race, Mahasatya Janczak is also in second place with 241 miles.
Both races end on Friday 27th April at 12 noon.
