On the weekend from October 5th to October 6th 2013 the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Serbia Team hosted the 17th Belgrade Ultramarathon of Self Transcendence with the strong presence of runners from Slovenia.

As is usual with events held by Sri Chinmoy the air at Ušće Park was full of quiet and gentle determination. The runners had a choice of running for 6, 12 or 24 hours but the track was the same for everybody. Two kilometers round loop. It was a question of will.

There were 69 finishers at the individual events and among them four Slovenian runners.

You can see the high spirit of Miha and his support team from reports at his personal blog. Miha’s goal was a qualification standard for Spartathlon which he achieved without problems.

 and were running for 12 hours and they finished at top two places. David did 112 kilometers while Daniel stopped at exactly 100 kilometers.
