General Race Gear Info

Hydration Bag / Water Bottle

Hydration Bag or a Water Bottle (1L) is mandatory for all runners. It can get very hot between 10:00 AM & 02:00 PM and cold between 10:00 PM to 04:00 AM, runners must be self sufficient between the aid stations. We won’t provide plastic bottles at the start, finish or at the Aid stations.

Head lamps/torches
Head lamps are mandatory for runners running the 110K & 80K.  Runners should also ensure that they have sufficient spare batteries with them for the head lamps.  

Mobile phones

It is also highly recommended that runners carry their mobile phones.  While network is expected to be patchy, in the event of any emergency, runners may be able to contact race officials (whose numbers will be provided to all participants in advance). From our experience, we have seen that BSNL has reasonably better coverage along the course.

Whistle

Every runner is also advised to bring a whistle and to carry the same all through the race. However, runners are requested to use the whistles ONLY in case of an emergency, and in order to help volunteers and race officials find you.

Sun protection

The course does not have adequate shade from trees and it gets very sunny during day time. We recommend that you carry necessary protection against the sun, which may include sun screen, cap, sleeves, shades etc.

Footwear

The course is not bare-foot friendly and we highly recommend to wear trail running shoes. We will also not permit runners to run bare-foot.
