About the event

Dear Runners, friends and supporters of the Sri Chinmoy 6-hour race in Nuremberg,

thank you so very much for your participation in recent editions of this race and your wonderful support over the last years. Thank you as well to all those who already registered for this year’s edition.

Now our important message: Unfortunately, we have to cancel the 2018 edition of the race due to a cumulation of personal and thereof resulting organisational challenges. We are very sorry to give you this news but you can be ensured it was not an easy decision for us.

What does that mean for the 2019 edition? Like every year, next year’s race will take place in March and we are already looking forward seeing you there.

Of course, every other race of the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team is not affected and will take place as scheduled. Please see your events page for each event details.

We wish you all an enthusiastic and successful 2018 running season and are looking forward to meet you again.

Your Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team
