Leh, Jammu and Kashmir (India) - "La Ultra, The High". This is an ultra marathon like no other. Never before was something labeled so cruel seeing the elements around it. When someone takes away 50% of oxygen around you, decreases the pressure where it is difficult for your body to adapt, and asks you to run 333 Kms under 72 hours, the idea surely seems insane. As part of the 10th anniversary this year, we are introducing a 555 km category that will go over 5 Himalayan passes, all above 17,500 ft. This feat is something that has never been attempted before in non-stop ultra running & the Himalayas. www.laultra.in

Faridabad, Haryana (India) - "Bhatti Lakes Ultra". This is one amazing experience with a mix of tough trail, undulating thorn strewn paths, rocky sections that are slippery and sandy patches that one least expects in a city trail. The magic of this trail brings runners back to it, year after year. Experience the trail that mesmerizes the experienced and the amateur trail runner alike. The route is an out and back of the same trail. One complete lap (out and back) is 20Kms. Based on your race category, you will need to do as many laps as needed. The 10Kms category runners will use the trail up to 5Kms and return to the start point. www.globeracers.com/bhatti-lakes-ultra

Malnad, Karnataka (India) - "Malnad Ultra". he Malnad Ultra is mostly a trail run through some of the most enchanting and exciting terrain that you can imagine for a run. It is designed to provide the next level experience for marathoners who have got bored of the usual city runs and want to graduate to the next level. The course is laid out in the heartland of Indian coffee in the Malnad region of Karnataka at elevations from 3000 to 4500 feet. In a way, The Malnad Ultra is not designed as a race per se. We think that the runners will take time for selfies, listen to the leaves rustle, the cicadas chirp and the birds sing. Massive jungle trees, thousands of silver oak trees and endless coffee plantations will catch your attention. With some luck, you will sight small wildlife like monkeys, porcupines, peacock, hares, giant squirrels, civet cats and snakes. Of course, competitive runners will find this course challenging and it is an opportunity to earn some points to qualify for UTMB. www.malnadultra.com
