Satara Police Ground
Police Ground, Malhar Peth, Satara, Maharashtra, India
The half marathon route passes through the majestic Western Ghats (Part of the Sahyadri range of forests in Western Mahatrashtra) It is a challenging out and back run, through the hills around Satara, taking the runners on a roller coaster ride , through spectacular scenes of natural beauty.
Run alongside waterfalls, through clouds, and often through light to heavy rain showers (If mother nature smiles on you on race day !)
The race is an out and back course, meaning – we start and end at the same place (The Satara Police Ground).
The race starts in the heart of the historic city of Satara, the erstwhile capital of the Maratha Kingdom, winds through its snaky roads for about 3.8 kms, and then begins the steady climb on the road towards the famous Kaas – Plateau of Flowers, a UNESCO World Heritage site. A breathtakingly beautiful run on a winding, twisting climb of about 3.25 km will take you to the summit of the mountain at Niwant Hill Resort (Yavateshwar). From here, it is a much welcome and relatively comfortable run on a gentle rolling course of about 3.5 km, up to the half way mark just beyond Prakruti Ayurvedic Health Resort.
This resort is well known for its holistic treatment centre for chronic illnesses and Ayurvedic Panchkarma treatment and Massage therapy. But don’t start thinking of the massage yet !!! You need to run back from here, all the way to the Finish, along the same scenic route, albeit on a slope all the way down (sure to zap your quads here).
We have now set a new benchmark for the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the "Most people in a mountain run - single mountain".
