The 2016 edition of the Self-Transcendence 24 hour track championship saw 26 out of the 45 starters breaking the magic 100 mile barrier. It also witnessed:
- A new course record (James Stewart 160 miles)
- A new world record (women/over 65 - Ann Bath 115 miles)
The event was organised by Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team, who provided a team of counters and volunteers to serve the runners. This video gives a brief insight into the race and some of the runners and volunteers who helped to make it a very successful edition.
