Welcome to the 2nd edition of Runbhoomi Races, an extreme footrace through primary Lonavala Jungle in Maharashtra.
Lonavala Trail Run, the Indias wildest eco race, gives competitors the opportunity to combine sport and eco-tourism and experience this stunning part of India.
We offer three distances:
Lonavala Trail Run [21km]
Dream Green Run [10km]
Joy of Jungle [5km]
The course, which includes swamps, river crossings, steep climbs and descents, village trails and fluvial beaches, combined with humidity and scorching temperatures makes it a daunting and exciting race, but well within the realms of any competitor who has a strong mental mindset.
Yes, physical fitness is a requirement- but if you don’t have a strong mental tenacity to combine with it then you will struggle to reach the finish.
If you are ready for one of the most exciting and challenging adventures of your life, sign up today and join us from 24th December 2017 in Lonavala, Maharashtra at the 2nd Edition of the legendary Runbhoomi Races.
