Here is the link to the route for the runs 10.55k - 21.1k and 42.2k runners do multiple loops: http://runkeeper.com/user/RahulVerghese/route/3252648

All these cross country runs start at Acorn Hideaway Resort and Spa at Sawaldey Village and end there too.
There is a 5.275k loop towards the new Forest Gate at Dhela Village and Back. The 10.55km runners do one loop, the half marathoners do 2 loops and full marathoners do 4.

The first 1.5km out from Mapple Resort and the last 1.5km back on the loop are on a narrow pebbly forest trail - prepare well for that.
The 5km runners turn back after 2.5km on the road towards Dhela Village.

Corbett

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.

This run is cross country which CAN have a incidence of ankle twisting, slipping and falling.
Listen to your body and heart and do not push 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. We want you to have fun and stay safe, and do your bit towards that.

 

If you are planning for a full or a half marathon choose one of these three training schedules depending on whether this is your first or if you are wanting to improve upon your performance, or make this your best ever full -  http://runningandliving.com/HalfandFullMarathon/#marathon

Try and car pool or come by train or bus while coming in - to stay green

Drive or take a train or a bus
As you reach RamNagar while coming in from Moradabad, you will come to a T junction – the right fork goes along the Kosi river, towards Ranikhet and the left fork takes you towards Sawaldey Village and the Dhela and Khara Gate of Corbett Park and is also known as Dhela Road. Turn left and go down about 9km to Sawaldey Village There is a left turn and a 1.5km narrow mud and pebbled track to reach Acorn Hideaway Resort and Spa. We would recommend coming from Delhi by the overnight train - Ranikhet express - departure 1040pm from Delhi Junction and arrival Ramnagar at 5am. If you have planned well and got things organised for your jungle visit by your hotel or friends etc - we would ideally suggest that you go on a jungle visit straight from the station - as that starts at 6am, and then post that - freshen up and come to Acorn Hideaway Resort and Spa for the expo and race packet pick up.

Book accommodation and jungle trips early to avoid disappointment, Decide now - this is Corbett's peak season for visitors.
