Organiser's Note

"RUNNING IS AN EXERCISE OF PATIENCE AND PERSEVERANCE. WHEN LIFE IS HARD ON THE TRAIL, I RELY ON THE LESSONS I’VE LEARNED ON THE TRAIL" 

- DANIEL BOWMAN

 

Running has come a long way. From being a fringe sport, a few years back, today running is the sport of choice for all those wanting to get fit.
 
Marathon runners in India mark January as the start of the year with the prestigious Tata Mumbai Marathon. Almost exactly a month later, we launch India’s first certified Ultra Marathon – Tata Ultra on 25th February 2018.
 
Certified by the Athletic Federation of India, Tata Ultra covers a distance of 50 kms and there will also be a shorter race of 35kms.

 

why TATA ULTRA?

Practice - Test your endurance and ability closer home to gear up for international Ultras
 
Level up – The 35 kilometres shorter run is a perfect level up from 21 kms in preparation for the full marathon
 
Convenient - Save yourself the trouble of arrangements for a long run. Water, medical aid and other facilities are all planned for you on the route
 
Scenic – If all this isn’t reason enough, the undulating slopes and picturesque forts and Pawna lake are enough to uplift your motivation levels
 
No cut off time – As a bonus, there is no cut-off time! Run at your pace and finish the race to take home your first ultra-medal
 

why LONAVALA?

The challenging slopes of the Sahyadri range, gives every runner an opportunity to test themselves to the fullest.
 
Enjoy the pleasant February climate with a late midnight start.
 
As the day breaks, enjoy the breath taking views of the beautiful Pawna Lake, with majestic forts of Tung and Tikona keeping watch.
 
Lonavala is conveniently located for runners from Mumbai, Pune and other major towns in Maharashtra and Gujarat.
