Our original two-mile races were initiated by Sri Chinmoy in 1980 through a series of special competitions in the metropolitan New York area. These races gave impetus to the worldwide Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team that exists today. Many countries still maintain the 2 mile races,as well as longer races, triathlons, marathons and ultras.The two-milers were a humble beginning to a much larger vision that Sri Chinmoy was hoping to implement. So it is with this same intent that the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team has launched the International 2 Mile Race web site. We humbly dedicate the site with the intention of continuing Sri Chinmoy's vision and honoring his contributions to the running world, while at the same time keeping you inspired with the latest results and news from athletes the world over.
