Did you know about the sport of trail running in India? Picture this – Running and hiking on mountain trails through muddy streams and across quaint villages, through forests, deserts, snow and every other trail through the outdoors. Designed to test your endurance while filling you with the magic of the outdoors, trail running is a sport you could easily get hooked on to.
Take your trail running to the next level by participating in Ultramarathons. Ultra-marathons are also called ultra distance or ultra running events. These are footraces longer than the traditional marathon distance of 42.195 km.
One such trail run is the Malnad Ultra. There are three categories over 50, 80 and 110 kms held in the Western Ghats of South India. Some of the other trails that are held in India are – Sandakphu 70 Mile Himalayan Race, Run the Rann, Nilgiris Ultra, Mount Abu Trail Marathon, Kaveri Trail Marathon and more.
India’s first ultra marathon, the Bangalore Ultra was held in 2007. Since 2010, Indian Himalayas have hosted The La Ultra – The High, a 333 km course crossing Khardung La, touted to be the world’s highest motorable mountain pass.
We invite all of you, whether runners or not, to come and experience the sport of ultra running through these movies. Watch India’s ultra runners fight their hurdles and chase victory. You get to meet ultra runner and cinematographer Mr. Delton Dsouza during the screening. Delton is a Director, Cinematographer, YouTuber and a Vegan Ultra Runner. He loves the outdoors, especially trail running and he figured that he should combine the two things that he loves doing and viola Trail Running Videos! He is the first in India to do this (He says ever so humbly) Go ahead and watch the plethora of content on his YouTube channel www.youtube.com/musclemadt
