Ready to run “Around The World”? Then this event is for you!
Both races take place in Flushing Meadows Park on a scenic and mostly flat course that includes a gentle curve around “The World” - the iconic 140-ft tall World’s Fair Unisphere. Accurately measured, USATF certified course.

Choose one of the following 3 options:

1-Mile Race: 9:30AM start. An out-and-back course, the "turnaround" is a gentle 250-meter curve around the Unisphere. Course includes a small hill.
Sprinters, runners and joggers welcome! View course map >> [https://us.srichinmoyraces.org/files/us/events/edit/course-maps/scmt_1_mile_flushing-web.pdf]

4-Mile Race: 10:00AM start. Two laps around a 2-mile loop, which includes the 1-mile section described above (you get to run around the world twice!), and a 1-mile section that touches the shores of Meadow Lake. View course map >> [https://us.srichinmoyraces.org/files/us/events/edit/course-maps/scmt_4_mile_flushing-web.pdf]

ABOUT US:

From race directors to course monitors, all Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team races are staffed by its own volunteers since the Team’s inauguration in 1977 by its founder and fitness advocate, Sri Chinmoy.

Today, the SCMT puts on over 500 races a year in 20 countries across 5 continents, ranging from short kids fun-runs, to marathons to the world’s longest certified road race – the annual Self-Transcendence 3100 mile race (yes, 3,100 miles, it’s not a typo). We love running and putting on races – we hope you enjoy the friendly atmosphere we provide, free of commercial sponsors.
