We are inclusive of all members of the LGBT+ community and welcome entrants as Female, Male or Non-Binary. Only Male and Female categories will be captured in results for ranking purposes, however all non-binary times are captured in the overall race results. The reason for this is we must adhere to the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) Rules & Regulations.

Inspiration: Our races focus on giving each runner a good experience, an opportunity to transcend their limits and achieve their personal goals. Our inspiration is Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007), the founder of our Marathon Team, who was not only an avid athlete and pioneer in the world of running and ultra-running races, but a teacher of meditation. He recognised the sport of running as a powerful way to develop concentration, confidence, determination, peace of mind and happiness.
