Thank you for joining us at the 2nd edition of the Deccan Ultra 2020.

Dates for 2021 edition will be announced soon.

India, a land of diverse terrain, ranging from the rocky faces of the Himalayas to the forested slopes of the Sahyadris and the Western Ghats, offers grueling and challenging race routes.

Grand Indian Trails – GRIT, brings few of the best trails in the Sahyadris range.

With the Deccan Ultra, we introduce trails nestled deep within the Sahyadri Range, offering mesmerizing views of the Deccan Plateau. The Deccan Ultra route includes the highest peak of Maharashtra, Kalsubai at an altitude of 1646m and also the toughest triple-trouble forts in Sahyadri; Alanggad, Madangad and Kulanggad, commonly called the AMK.



The route is a mix of easy-ascent slopes as well as treacherous rocky outcrops overlooking the valley below. To climb the near-vertical slopes there are iron ladders along the course. The 110km category circulates around the Bhandardhara dam and involves climbing 5 forts and the Kalsubai peak.


The course is set on mountainous terrain and requires you to climb and descent technical sections. To enjoy the run, and experience the course to the fullest, train well.

All the categories are certified by the ITRA, International Trail Running Association and will have points to qualify for the UTMB races. Deccan Ultra is now a candidate race for Asia Trail Masters 2021
