Overview

Marathon

The 41.2 km track takes you through tea plantations, Shola forests and some of the scenic locales in Munnar. The varying gradient track takes you to a maximum altitude of 1850m MSL, which in itself is a tiring task, but definitely not impossible if you make up your mind. Refreshment points will be arranged every 4 Kms to keep you hydrated and fit throughout the race. Course marshals and backup vehicles will always be there to assist in case of need. Barefoot runners please note that you will have to maneuver through unpaved, tractor-able roads. Please be prepared for this.
