Why this Ultramarathon?

It is a fun run to give a message of “ Wellness over Illness “ . “If we can run for 12 hours; you too can run for at-least 12 minutes and remain fit and healthy”.

Running is natural to us. Our bodies were built to walk and run. And hey, you’re never too old to begin. At Mumbai Ultra, you’ll come across runners from all age groups -- 19 year olds to the health-conscious 70-somethings. Many runners we know began running only in their 50s and 60s.

The challenge of the long run provides a tremendous boost to your confidence and belief in yourself --and that is all you really need to get where you want to, in life. Running makes you a winner!

Our motto is Choose Wellness Over Illness, so come and experience the joy of running and the wonderful camaraderie of Mumbai’s vibrant running community, without the demands of racing. What’s more, you’ll be running alongside some of the country’s best ultra-runners, who, for that day, will set aside their personal goals to run with you, purely for the joy of running.
