My Best Run so far MATHERAN ENDUROTHON 2016 in July 2016 Fortunately our cottage was near the start line...The pouring rains greeted us since morning and it kept on hitting us intermittently... Running on trails and on slippery , muddy and stones with water logging was a great challenge... Running on a virgin trail with zero pollution was a bliss...The challenging ups and downs threw another challenges under torrential rains ...It was a lifetime experience.

The race anything but easy. Soft mud & slushy tracks, gravel and plains, under the dense tree cover to running in the heavy rain and most of all running uphill. Kudos to our 2 #rockstars Murli Pillai who did 50k and Harish Kshirsagar who completed ! timing doesnt matter its the finish that does. Proud of you guys :-)

Who wouldn't love to run on this beautiful trail. Misty mountains, streams,and a lovely drizzle. It was a tough race, but the nature made us forget that it was tough. With visibility less that 40mtrs due to mist, it felt as if we are running in the clouds.

Matheran Endurathon- Beauty of a Trail- Matheran– a hill station in the Raigad district of Maharashtra. I need not introduce Matheran to Mumbaikars and Punekars, for the others- Matheran is the smallest hill station in India and is located on the Western Ghats range at an elevation of around 800 m (2,625 feet) above sea level. It is about 120 km from Pune.
