Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race 2017

The field for the Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race 2017 has been announced.

This year Austrian Smarana Puntigam returns after a 9 year hiatus having run the race seven years in a row.
Scotlands William Sichel also returns for a second adventure after completing the distance in 2014. William will be hoping to add a bucketful of age group records to his amazing tally of over 160 Scottish, UK, and age-group records.
American Yolanda Holder is taking part in the race for the first time and is very excited about the prospect. In 2015 she set a Guiness record of 340 consecutive days of walking 26.2 miles and in 2016 finished second in the Self-Transcendence 10 day race walking 622 miles, a new US age group record.
Vasu Duzhiy will take part for the 6th time and having won the race in 2013 knows what the race is about. Ireland's Nirbhasa Magee also returns after finishing the race in 2015.
Having finished the event in 2016 Kaneenika Janakova will no doubt be trying to improve upon her time. Harita Davies from New Zealand will also be taking part for the first time after having run the 10 day and the 6 day races in New York.
