Mukteshwar Half Marathon 5th Edition, 14th May 2017
About The Event
We’re back with the 5th edition of one of India’s toughest and most beautiful Half Marathon.
Join us at 7:30 am on 14th May 2017 as runners from across the country embark on a 21 KM journey through the pine covered forest roads of Mukteshwar to participate in the 5th edition of the Mukteshwar Half Marathon.
The race courses has flats, inclines and some downhills which makes it a tough nut to crack. But don’t worry- there will be breathtaking views of the Himalayas, crowd support and really nice weather to help you get to the finish line of the Mukteshwar Half.
Our inspiration to bring this race to the people of Kumaon comes from the five Himalayan peaks (Nanda Devi, Nanda Kot, Nandaghunti, Trishul and Panchachuli) that are visible from Mukteshwar and from many points on the running route.
The people behind the race are avid runners themselves. The route has been carefully chosen and there will be water points stocked with the stuff that we know is good for you.
