The course:
The course is very tough - train well with hill training or a load on your back, Acclimatise well before the run, get used to the altitude.

The course starts at the spectacular Ridge at the Top of the Mall and winds down past Historic buildings of Shimla to the scenic PeterHof Hotel. The 6km runners take a U turn from here and come back to finish at the Ridge.

The Half Marathoners, Ultra Half Marathoners, and the 14km runners go right, down to Annadale on their way to the Peterhof from the Ridge. A continuous descent of 4 km later they see the green golf range and the army museum, and then come face to face with the incredibly steep climb back up - of 1km. Don't even attempt running up - you will needlessly tire yourself out for the latter part of the run. Back up to the Vidhan Sabha and right, past the lawns of the Peterhof and then descend down and go past the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies and onwards past the ITI and close to the HP University- A U turn back, with a descent and then a steady ascent back up to the Ridge. Much walking will be needed and those who have acclimatized well for the altitude will be better off. Walk a lot.

With 14km over you reach the ridge and the most grueling long climb is over.

Then starts the 7 km circumference of Jakhu hill - Clarke's Hotel - Oak Over - The CM's Residence, then the Governors Residence, then onto Forest Hill Road to Bede's Chowk. Then on the main circular road for 50m and a steep climb on the left takes you up towards Indus Hospital. It is advisable to walk on this stretch too.
Then it levels off at Upper Sanjhauli and you can relax with a descent down past the IGMC, Lakkad Bazar and a finish at the Ridge, near the Church. The Ultra half marathoners will do a ~2km climb from the top of the Indus climb, to go to the base of Jakhu temple and then run 2km down to do ~4km more than a half marathon as they then follow the remaining half marathon route.

Do not carry anything in your hands and be watchful of the monkeys on this stretch. We will have volunteers here too

See the Map and the Elevations - come prepared to stay a few days in Shimla before the run - Enjoy the fresh mountain air, the heritage and nature.



Shimla is at an average altitude of 7200 ft so if you are coming from the plains - spend a few days to acclimatize a bit. This is a tough but hugely scenic route. So don't plan on a personal best in terms of time. It's likely to be a personal best route. The looping course is full of facilities and will have opportunities for runners to 'run into each other' and cheer each other on and stop for many photo opportunities. IF you feel cold at the start - wear a couple of thin layers which you can give to a friend at the start point as you loop back at the mark. It is likely to get warmer from 8 am onwards so splash a bit of water over your head too, at the water points as you take a glug or two.

Race Rules:
Your entry is not transferable to other people and is not cancelable.
You must wear your race bib as issued, pinned on front, and must not reduce its size or modify it in any way.
Entrants must not be accompanied on the course by cyclists, vehicles, or people not entered in the event.
Participants must be over 18 years of age

Running is a fun activity but running in a race, like engagement in any activity, also comes with attendant risks, which you should be aware of, and only then enter.

Anyone registering for a our race should make sure that he/she is medically fit and does not have any precondition - however minor it may seem to them, that would indicate that they should not run eg being on some medication, onset of a cold or flu, not yet recovered from a flu or an injury etc.

Some runs are cross country which CAN have a incidence of ankle twisting, slipping and falling.
Some runs are at altitude which require acclimatization, and also listening to your body and heart and not pushing yourself beyond a limit. Walk when tired.
Some runs are in heat and in humidity, and require regular hydration to ensure you do NOT get dehydrated or start cramping.
Some runs are in colder weather which should also require some ingestion of salty items - sports drinks or other solids or liquids to prevent cramping.

We want you to have fun and stay safe, and do your bit towards that.
