Cardiff Races


The Sri Chinmoy AC is a running club which is open to all members of Sri Chinmoy Centres worldwide.  In keeping with Sri Chinmoy's philosophy of self-transcendence , we like to run and we like to organise races - from 2 miles to 3100 miles (the longest certified road race in the world).  3100 Miles Web Site

Abichal Watkins, from Pontypool, is a Sri Chinmoy AC member who has twice completed this epic race.  You can read about his experiences on his web site -

Here in Cardiff we hold Self-Transcendence Races every summer in Pontcanna Fields, organised by the staff at Run and Become.   The size of the field ranges from 35-90 runners and the course is flat and scenic, going partly along the banks of the River Taff.  All-comers are welcome - we have had entrants ranging from international-level athletes to novice first-time racers and a friendly atmosphere is an essential part of the mix.

To date, for the last three years we have held a 3-race series, of 2, 3 and 4 miles respectively.  New for summer 2006 will be a 3 X 1 mile relay.
