3 races

Running and Living

The course starts at the spectacular Ridge at the Top of the Mall and winds down past Historic buildings of Shimla to the scenic PeterHof Hotel.

Shimla is at an average altitude of 7200 ft so if you are coming from the plains – spend a few days to acclimatize a bit. This is a tough but hugely scenic route. So don’t plan on a personal best in terms of time. It’s likely to be a personal best route. The looping course is full of facilities and will have opportunities for runners to ‘run into each other’ and cheer each other on and stop for many photo opportunities. IF you feel cold at the start – wear a couple of thin layers which you can give to a friend at the start point as you loop back at the 13km mark. It is likely to get warmer from 8 am onwards so splash a bit of water over your head too, at the water points as you take a glug or two.
