It'd rain the whole the whole the whole day. It was really tough experience as an organizer at the end of it. We all swore that we would never ever do it again. And brilliant and so progressing from the that. That was kind of really early days. Trump won globally Lorna strategy. But it was just starting out you might have had. That was an trough on that point. The plane had started. Yes I think the before so it was a early dies and and obviously from the event they grew quite rapidly and the street will try on weekend. I I'm not sure exactly what it was called. Become one of the biggest trough on events in Australia it was. Yeah right through the ninety S as I was fifty five athletes. The first year the next year there were two hundred and something the year after four hundred so it went like that and then in Nineteen Ninety. We added the what was called the mini trial which was a sprint distance triathlon. As a way of sort of giving more people an opportunity to participate by that stage the longer race had evolved into. What's now known as the long course or have on distance And then we just kept adding rises and it became a three day of ain't it rises at one stage with short rises for kids an off road triathlon and behind all ultra triathlon. Which you could do as well which was fifteen k. Swim Four Hundred Block and one hundred K run so the ultimate Australia's short now and it's not even as long as what it used to be. That's right that was the longest triathlon. We've had Australia. And that lasted about six or seven years but due to not a very high demand for that. This wasn't sustainable to keep going. And so then those early nineties or or even late eighties early nineties. There were some phenomenal triathletes here in Cambra albeit some really big names. Yeah we did. Most of the big names in Australia came in and raced that he is. My my memory's pretty high but you know you could pick out any nine to rice. Certainly sort of the nineties hit the LIKES OF GASOLINE CLUES. You use rods. Ours would have been racing speaking malls. Recently he came down to camera quite often and he said I love that Rice at least one so Beca Lazuli dies in listeners. That feeling you enroll to triathlon. You could rice without a top on so Easter see guys racing and just speed Os and are no. When I was growing up through that Period Zealand there was quite a bit angst. When that rule coming to apply Sakaba places shirt over top of the torture you to cover it and was at the same Australia like is it. Was that a challenging rule. Change that people just accepted it and went straight and I think for most people. It wasn't wasn't a big deal. There's there's always going to be the individual who's got issues with any rule or any rule change if you get used to something then you'd like to see a change but I was never aware of anyone being upset about it okay. So you're now you've got your triple triathlon in you. Have the off road to athlon here. Kind of the two events that a left winded. The triple try begin and you know for me it is. I never heard about it until I arrived in camera but to me. It's one of the most phenomenal rices in the world. It's a right which is really unique to camera and it was conceived out of being camera. It was first held in actually nine hundred ninety five. We had a trial with just five teams. Just you know no entry fee. Now if he's just sort of see how it went and the feedback we got from that was encouraging so ninety. Ninety six was the first official triple triathlon. By that stage. We were studying heavy issues with the on road triathlons with traffic and traffic management and so many other things and we were just attracted to the offroad stall event and with camera having three likes you know. I had the idea. Let's connect US relax. Let's have a swimming each leg and then realize that Gashi between you go to laze wonderful areas of Niger. Reserve that you can connect with mountain box and off ride running. So the event just kind of was created by Canberra's natural environment and for always listening. It is three back to back trough on events. I think the record for the guys is around. Ten hours was bob minutes. Yep and which has just recently so it's a very challenging event. It's you know it's head. Extremes weather over the his eye on my face G here had to be cancelled because of thirty nine degrees. And I'm sure it's heads in cold weather as well being in November. Yes it is is variable. You do get very hot days and your call and windy and rainy days as well. But we've also had some fantastic dies it's event Canberra athletes love because it showcases. You know everything about why we love to live in Canberra and train and rising camera. I think all triathletes will train on some of the tracks that are used in the course of the trip triathlon. At your back door. You'll be five ten minutes away from one of the tracks. We beat on Black Mountain. Mount Madeira or Mount Ainslie. All Pharaoh Ridge or all of these areas are beloved by Kendra athlete so to have the opportunity to Rice on the backyard is glad through and differently so if you will you let did you compete. Try Funds in the early years or or right through not. I was never tried late. I mean I've done a couple of triathlons Sort of to prove that I could because I was never a swimmer. I have a running background so that that was I was always more interested in in running and more or less got involved in triathlons. Because we had this. Ain't you know and And I loved organizing and I love the challenge the logistic challenge and also of course the people Triathletes and athletes in general a very motivated and very young aspiring. Looking to live life to the fallen. That's what that's what we love to see. So it's it's always challenging. It's always very rewarding to be involved with these type of challenging events and what I love about these events is we've seen the advent of I'm an challenge and I to you. Everything's about how it looks. You know there's a lot involved in those big rices or love about the street. Rises FOR IT IS SIMPLE. It is grassroots it reminds me of when. I started in the eighties. And it's got that special unique touch to it that a lot of people keep coming back to because of that really can re real community feel and that sort of low price fall aspect to it. So it's fantastic. If keep those ingredients as part of your rices well thanks. It's good to hear but you absolutely right. You know. We're not the Muslim things not a business. We put on rises to make money and I guess I mean I totally understand if your business and putting on a rise to make money. You've got a different approach to make a profit you want to. Of course we want athletes coming to the races. But we're not looking to create an atmosphere that he's GonNa Generate Revenue. We're looking to create an atmosphere where athletes have the best opportunity to to do their best rice. And so I guess I'll motivations different and our inspiration is different. Why the reason we put the Rice's on so I mean there's room for all kinds of races this there's room for the big resumes loud rock music at the finish line type of event. But there's definitely room for the simple humble becton talk events. We lock and for me when I first got the winning sore did as part of a tame the really cool thing for me at the finish line was probably the best recovery off saying out of these gigantic pancakes witted. How did that start out? Good question we've always had food at triathlon festivals. You know the finish line at the end of the Phoenix as a triathlon. There's a we have a vegetarian restaurant in Dixon. Rambo dreams little plug there for anyone opposite the post office puff along if you want to have good vegetarian meal. So we've got a lot of good kooks in our organization. It's all vegetarian food. That's part of our philosophy so a lot of athletes are also looking to will and to eat healthy food so we've always had that aspect of the event the larger events we started. Doing pancakes actually was our sister organization in Melbourne. This reaching Maryland team did. I started doing the pancakes and it was big. Hit this of course we copied them and started doing pancakes for running events and for the over Jerusalem if you otherwise for the for the Trial run series for example because they held a little later in the day. We have a burger sort of a brunch for Lance. You've got the off road to F coming up on August. The fourth Sunday always the fourth Jonah explained to our listeners. What's involved and how can find out more information? Definitely what involved is off road duathlon? It's a genuine Bush rise in the heart of the city Around Black Mountain Peninsula. In what is a very rare incidents? The first run is held in the National Botanic Gardens. It's the only sporting event ever been allowed to happen in the National Botanic Gardens. So that's a rea- to be able to run. Excuse me to be able to run around then. The mountain bike course and the second run Cosa role on tracks and trials around Black Mountain. There's a long and the short course option. The short course option is relatively straightforward as suitable for beginners and kids whereas long course specially those second run is is really tough so if you want a bigger challenge go for the long course if you want something simpler or faster governor short goes and you can do it. In teams of two with a run around the Baga teams up and if you want more information a dot switching dot org is.

His I was a fifty miler in two thousand eight then he ran one hundred Mylar and then two hundred and then three hundred until eventually he worked his way up to running a race. That was whatever far you could run in ten days. Those put on by shriek him noise followers in two thousand sixteen. Kobe won that race by running seven hundred fifty five miles and after that treats him Moi's disciples extended an invitation for the thirty one hundred mile race. But initially Kobe said no his youngest son was only four years old two little for him to leave for two months. He said he would come when his son was six. So they give me a rain check. They told me come in two thousand eighteen. A we have a space, but it's important to to do a big race own Simmons. Most of Kobe's previous races had been on trails. And they wanted to make sure that his body was really ready for the punishing impact running thousands of miles on a Queen city sidewalk. So in the summer of two thousand seventeen Kobe ran a thousand mile race in South Africa on a paved golf course, he told me that an attacking peacock was the most interesting thing that happened to him whole time when his body recovered from that race he began training for the self transcendence race that meant spending months doing as much as five hours of training day. But it didn't actually involve much long distance running. He was more interested in training his mind to suffer. And it took me understand that the longer the the mileage the that. I enjoy the run. When I turn myself. I do the opposite. My training is not long grounds. Because I know that they suffer an it's more difficult for me to run short distances all of my training session. Our shots. I take the the most difficult things and do it could have gone for around fourteen hours. I know that after few hours wouldn't suffer a will enjoy it. So what what would they learn from that one? So when I train very hard. They do full five sessions of twenty a day. But they will they will be one hour of working one hour of weightlifting one hour of hill, climbing one hours. They won't be anything that is very long. The other thing Koby did to prepare was to bulk up knowing that his body would start to consume itself for fuel over the course of the race. I took to the people who've done dispensing the best. They told me the to lose a lot of body mass and to gain weight. I knew myself, mentally and physically, and I knew I knew that if I am with eight ten pounds overweight offense. It will depress me. So I decided to come weeds ten fifteen pounds mall of muscles. So in Kobe towed. The starting line in queens. He was physically primed but emotionally he was less certain the furthest he'd ever run was that Dow's and mile race in South Africa. This race would be three times as long when we met or runners I sought it. A lot of the wellness. Seemed from the outside most secure, and I looked at myself and people reacted that I look concerned, and I was concerned. Everybody looked so happy and relaxed. I was concerned I talked to talk to myself to to be confidence. It seems not to not logical to me that uncertainty is a familiar feeling if you've ever told the line in a long race, you if you know you've done the training and your body is ready, mentally you can't help. But wonder if you have what it takes of the ten runners in this year's race seven were disciples of SRI Chinmoy and almost all of them had completed the race.

We've come across some pretty ethics stuff ten thousand poems in twenty four hours holding your breath until you pass out spending an hour at the excruciating burning edge reluctant threshold. And those are just the events who've done stories about when you start looking into crazy endurance events. There's pretty much no end to what people are doing. There's an event in Utah where people hike up a mountain and ride down the gondola until they've ascended the same vertical climbing Mount Everest. There's the Barkley marathons which we haven't heard of it. I've got a documentary to recommend. It's a quirky little hundred mile race in Tennessee inspired by failed. Jailbreak forty two years ago and takes place on a course, so tough some people don't even finish the first two miles or there the triathlons where I was fireman's. We're the gold standard of endurance. But it turns out there are people doing double. Triple iron man's where racers do three iron man's in a row. There's also the Kentucky ironman and ironman every day for five days or the deca ironman, which is ten minutes. I mean, even imagine. And yet there's one race in Queens, New York that for my money is harder than all of those events. It's designed to test not just the physical endurance of the runners. But their mental fortitude is well, it's called the self transcendence thirty one hundred mile race, and it's the longest certified footrace in the world and possibly the toughest endurance event, ever conceived. This was the racist twenty second year, and in that time only forty three people have ever finished. So we asked reporter Stephanie Joyce to go check it out. I'm walking down one hundred sixty eighth street. It's a hot summer afternoon. It's probably in the low eighty s and sticky. There's no one out on the streets right now. This is kind of like a nice middle class neighborhood in queens. I don't see any runners other presumably this is the block that they run around the entire race. All three thousand one hundred miles of it takes place on this single city block runners have to do a minimum of sixty miles a day a little less than two marathons in order to finish the race within the fifty two day window that means circling the block at least a hundred and nine times every twenty four hours, but the fastest runners do even more laps Koby Orrin was on number one hundred and eleven one evening when I caught up with him.

Well, I guess I would say up front Sanjay is an award winning documentary film director based in New York City. And before I get into his films, I think it's worth mentioning that he's got this really interesting background. This is a guy who graduated from Berkeley with a and molecular and cell biology and neurobiology. So he super smart. But instead of going into medicine or research like his parents would have would have preferred. He is going on this wild spiritual quest. You get super into meditation. He becomes a devote e of Shri Chinmoy Srichan Moyen do. Yeah. Actually had one of his books when I was younger, really at one of my friends gave it to me and I checked it out. What did it tell you?

We talk about who that guy was, which is an amazing tale in its own right. And then we get in. To this movie thirty one hundred, which is a beautiful look, a beautiful journey into this nexus, this connection between running in its purest form and spiritual growth and intending that story.
