Matheran Endurathon 

See you all in April for Summer Edition and
in September for Monsoon Edition!

Welcome to Matheran Endurathon! one of the most happening and adventurous run. Last marathon we broke all barriers and had probably one of the best experiences we have ever had with the Monsoon marathon challenge! Let us run in the dense tree cover of Matheran. The only place where vehicles are not allowed. It is free of noxious pollutants. You can use the 10K timing certificate to qualify for other races. Race is under the aegis of Raigad District Athletic Association!

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.
