For the long distance runner
This is one event you don’t want to miss if you are into running. The Bangalore Ultra will be held at the Native Village at Hessaraghatta, on December 16.
An ultra marathon is a run where the distances covered by the participants are greater than the standard marathon distance of 42.2k. The categories are 78kms, 52kms, 26 kms and the longest is 104 kms. Any ultra also consists of a mix of trail and road running across scenic surroundings. It is a mental test of strength as much as a physical test of endurance. Running an ultra requires months of determination, hard work and training.
This is being organised by the Fuller Life folks and I’ve written about them earlier.
