Pune Ultra Marathon
Date(s) - 13/11
The 2nd edition of Pune Ultra comes with its unique experience of running in the Sahyadri mountain ranges. The race is set amidst beautiful rolling hills, fertile plains and breath-taking views. This run is no frills event meant for serious and trained runners aspiring to do a good ultra marathon with experience of running full marathons or other ultra events.
Route consists of one 25k loop (12.5 km out and back) to be completed twice.Right at the start runners will pass through rustic locality of Kalbhor, Loni . The winding track lined by vegetable farms will hit a disused canal and then go on towards the Hadapsar main canal. The route turns sharp left to go along the canal till the bridge. Here you take a sharp right turn over the bridge and again run on a tar road along the other side of the canal. After crossing the canal, the route meanders onto the first hill. After a while, you go past a temple on the left with a steepish hill road. The intimidating mountain ranges is quite a sight. At Ramdara you’ll be greeted by shade and aid station. Here on, the trail portion starts with fruit orchards and green fields aligning the route. At the track intersection take a left and the route heads on past farms and flower plantations. Your 12.5 km turnaround point will pop out of nowhere when this trail road meets the Hadpsar-Saswad tar road near Wadki village . Follow the same route back to Innovera High school and do TWO such loops!
