The ultimate spiritual exertion takes place on a tarmac road through a park. The Six Day Run is one of the most extreme endurance sports ever, with participants using meditation to try and go furthest in six days virtually without sleeping, all in memory of spiritual leader Sri Chinmoy. Taanila movingly portrays the strange mix of euphoric spirituality and the hardcore competitive element.
