When Wei Ming first came to the multi day races held in Flushing Meadow in 2014 he made clear just what his goal was, to run the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile race. He has continued his training and competing for many years and now at age 58 is the first Asian to enter the race, and if he is able to maintain his pace from the first day it will be likely he will succeed at completing the distance as well.
Seemingly always upbeat and positive he had an impressive first day with 80 miles which puts him in 3rd place
He is not an easy runner to keep up with.
All 7 runners completed at least 110 laps, the required distance the first day
