Race will take place in India, in the State of Rajasthan, between Udaipur « The Venice of Orient » and Jodhpur « The Blue City » - this will be a loop in Marwar plain and Mewar mountains and as a base camp the « Royal Ghanerao Castle » privatized - this is the Rajput warriors’ territory who display a proud expression with their moustache and colored turban !
After three editions of « Ultra Run Rarámuri » in Mexico, « Ultra Run Rajasthan » will take place from October 28 to November 6, 2019,and will have about 30 participants from various countries.
The participants will have a maximum of 108 hours, i.e. 4 days and one half, to complete 250 km non-stop with a D+ of 5000 m, day and night, in semi-sufficiency.
This means that each participant will manage their own time throughout his journey with, every 25 km, a race control point (CP), where they will be able to get water, extra food and rest.
Throughout the course, assistance and monitoring will be carried out by all-wheel drive, and a medical team will be present.
Regardless of the ranking, on these distances, finishing the race is a challenge in itself.
Paradoxically, it is easier to finish this type of race than to start it : the body needs several hours to accept the message given by the mind – at these distances we are running with our head : it is the way of the will.
It is also an almost mystical quest; many people say they emerge stronger from these experiences where they learned more about themselves, and to go beyond limits they believed impassable.
It is also a parenthesis in our lives, one where human relationships become easier.
Effort – in the midst of a dwarfing and sometimes hostile nature – makes masks drop removing all psychological and social barriers !
The race is not necessarily meant for accomplished athletes, but rather enduring adventurers, men and women looking for strong emotions, with priority given to the spirit of adventure.
The route will be particularly varied, alternating trails, ascents and descents on rugged paths…
The highlight of the race will be running around Kumbalgarh Fortress, a mini « China Wall » of 36 km per 1,100 m !
Our local agency has provided complementary packages (on request) during the race (accompanying package) and extensions after the race to attend the famous Pushkar Fair and visit Jaipur « The Pink City » (2 formulas with or without Agra and the Taj Mahal) as well as other free-choice extensions.
If you wish to « get out of your comfort zone », know your « real » limits facing the unknown, manage loneliness while interacting with « yourself », walk with « opened eyes » on a wild course, tackle this long journey non-stop as a « crossing » ... So, THIS RACE IS FOR YOU !!
