3100: Run and Become

What if the simple act of running could lead to profound enlightenment? 3100: Run and Become follows an unassuming Finnish paperboy in his attempt to complete the Self-Transcendence 3100 Miler – the world’s longest race – where he must run at least 60 miles per day for 52 days around a 1⁄2 mile sidewalk loop in New York City. His quest takes viewers not only to the heart of this astonishing event but around the globe to the ancient cultures that have held running sacred for millennia.

This feature length documentary is set to premiere in 2018. Visit the film’s site for more information.

The trailer will be released next year too, but in the meantime, here’s the teaser made for our successful Kickstarter campaign.

Day 35: Hotter.
..
Okay, this one was hotter than normal summer days in New York. The stiffling air, temps hovering around 97º (37-38ºC), and humidity index reaching 107 was enough to tell people to slow down, drink lots of liquids and stay out of the sun. The thought of running 50 to 60 miles in this sauna was difficult to imagine. Three people made it past 60 miles, with Nirbhasa Magee grabbing the Day Leader honor with 66.4 miles. Ananda-Lahari Zuscin continued to pressure for third place with a very solid 63.11 miles. Ashprihanal Aalto ran cautiously, but also enjoyed watching the annual handball tournament at the courts right near the race course, swamped with avid spectators looking for the best view. He said he never stopped completely, but looked for quick openings of the crowds to quickly maneuver around the spectators. He said you have to learn stealth technology like the ninjas do! (wink). Stay cool runners…

Day 34: Hot.
..
Yes, it is the start of a significant heat wave in the New York area, one in which we have not seen in several years. The runners had been advised of the news, and watched as Big Bertha, the famous oversize receptacle for runner immersion was hauled into place by three men in the middle of the afternoon. It helps to cool down a fatigued runner. The sun was intense all day, 93º F with southerly winds bringing in humidity drenched clouds from time to time. Ashprihanal Aalto wasted no time in running at a brisk pace for hours at a stretch, hiding the fact that he has gotten into shape and his maladies of back and leg injuries are now gone in the rear view mirror. Nirbhasa Magee gave chase, but the wiry Mr Aalto ended up staying for the whole 18 hours and securing 73.53 miles, his best day total since Day 1. He even found a feather to adorn his Chinese sun hat, dubbed the ‘Lampshade’. Meanwhile, seven of eight made it past 109 laps, 59.81 miles, the dividing line of positive outcome.

Tomorrow will be worse, and all personnel are on weather alert. This group of runners is veteran and strong-willed. I hope they use caution and stay healthy and safe. We shall see what Ma Nature has cooked up. ..

Day 33:
..
The rains in the morning were not bad enough to get anyone upset, and by afternoon, the moderate temps and cloud cover offered good running chances. Ashprihanal Aalto led all comers with 68.6 miles, almost two miles better than second-place man Nirbhasa Magee. In all, six runners topped 60 miles. Nirbhasa is nearly 61 miles ahead of his record-breaking performance from the 2017 3100 Mile Race. Harita Davies is amazingly 40 miles ahead of her pace from 2017.The big test for all will be the weekend heat wave, which will touch in at close to 100ºF on Saturday and Sunday.

Day 32: Tough Day, Tough Runners.
..
It was difficult from the start today. The sun was baking everything early and often, the traffic, if not heading to work was trending to the beaches, the humidity and cloud cover made it difficult to move without sweating a lot. The mercury peaked towards 95ºF ( 35ºC), and the doom and gloom on the radio was for an upcoming weekend of intense heat. The runners responded by continuing their trend of acquiring laps the old fashioned way- they run them. Nirbhasa Magee grabbed the Day Leader designation by two laps over a rejuvenated Ashprihanal Aalto, decreasing the lead to 38 laps. The evening was punctuated by a series of thunderstorms, started off by the fierce winds of a changing storm-front. The solar panel power was short-circuited, but just like the back–up generator, six of the eight runners made it past the secret Maginot Line of 109 laps before the midnight hour. Temperatures dropped by 20 degrees in a few hours. More storms will start off Thursday, but the determination of the proud runners is a sight to behold.

Day 31: Some Like It Hot.
..
Today, with the temps matching 95ºF (35ºC), the group of Eight moved along the sun-soaked course with a bit of careful resignation. The hottest spell of summer heat in a few years is entering the region, so ice on the head, salt intake, ice cream, hydration and keeping cool are important parts of the daily ritual in search of laps. With all the precautions from race staff to warnings on cell phones, the runners proceeded and played the weather. Except for one person. Ananda-Lahari Zuscin again led the charge with a sizzling 77.38 miles, making his two-day average at 75 miles per day. He seems focused, alert and ready to test himself under any conditions. He certainly has seen it all since this is his 15th attempt. Nirbhasa Magee gave chase with 67.5 miles and took back three miles from the overall leader. There are a maximum of 3 weeks left in the race, so hopes of finishing are in the immediate background of all. The tests by the elements are just another reminder of the randomness of circumstances that affect all the runners. We will see who rises from these temporary difficulties with smiles amid the sweat and toil. More later

Day 30: Move While You Can.
..
The heat, the miles, the surface all seemed to jump up and grab some of the runners. After 30 days there will always be signs for anyone and everyone in the race to chill out a bit, let the body heal just a little more. Hydrate, eat, survive. Five of the Eight did make it past 60 miles. Yes, the usual suspects- Vasu Duzhiy and Ashprihanal Aalto touched 68 miles, Nirbhasa Magee racked up 65.8, and Harita Davies reached 62+ miles. Ah, but the fifth runner to slide past 60 miles did it with style and speed, dazzling at times, after a month on the road. Yes, Ananda-Lahari Zuscin was the man to go 72.99 miles, and dive into fourth place head-first while claiming the Day Leader ribbon. This was the first place-change on the board in almost three weeks, and comes before a mini heat spell hits the metro area. Mr Aalto looked much better today, almost his old self, which will be imposing to the would–be contenders for top dog. Stay tuned folks, and stay cool in the Northern hemisphere, if you can.
