Route information
This is one of the most gruelling races on the planet. Over the course of 5 marathons in 5 days, runners will take on the remotest highway and with the harshest weather conditions.
The weather can vary from a hot 30 degrees to hail and snow storms. At night the temperatures can dip to -10 degrees.
The difficulty level only increases when you consider the average altitude is 4000m, oxygen levels are 50% and there is a total elevation gain of 3410m.
It is not all pain and exertion. Runners will also be treated to some of the best and remotest scenery that India has to offer. It is said that every curve on the road holds a new treat for the eyes.

Flights and transfers are not included in the price.
Manali is very well-connected to important tourist destinations like Leh, Shimla, Kullu, Dharamshala and New Delhi by means of a network of state-run as well as private buses. The bus journey from Delhi to Manali is 550km, and it is advisable to book your tickets in the air-conditioned Volvo coaches, as the buses are more comfortable than ordinary ones, keeping in mind the long distance of the journey.
Please not that the Leh airport is a military airport and only operates domestic flights. It is connected with major cities in the country.
Event day logistics
Competitors will arrive on the 13th June and spend 2 days acclimatizing before moving up to Marhi for the final day before the race start 08:00.

Go Beyond Challenge
Our roots are in off road sports. We offer a complete series of Ultra trail runs many of which have become "must do events" in the Ultra race calendar. Staying with the off road and trail theme we have a sprint style duathlon which once again is in a fantastic location with fabulous trails. But we like to provide something for everyone. We are also the organisers of the Northampton Half Marathon and The Pitsford Triathlons (Sprint and Standard), in fact we are a one stop shop for all the races you will ever need. Go Beyond was founded in 2008 and purchased in 2018 by Simon Hollis. We now work with over 30 charities helping them carry out fundraising through sport. So please, come and join us and take your fitness to a new level - and why not raise money for a good cause at the same time.
