Durshet Forest Marathon

DURSHET FOREST MARATHON – Of bulls, rivers, tribal villages, mountains and humans.

Sometimes a marathon isn’t just another run against time and others, it’s an experience way beyond that. Durshet Forest Marathon was one such intoxicating mix. The run amidst the breathtaking forest surroundings came with the challenges that the rough terrain possessed, the rain soothed but made the track difficulty go up multiple folds, the passages through the village taking you back in time, that opened up into stunning grasslands, this was a marathon to savour.
