Ultra Marathon

Ultra Marathon in India..

Perhaps for the first time, Ultra Marathon is coming to India. Its going to happen in Mysore for 10 days from September 22, 06 - October 2, 06. I am not sure if they are going from Mysore to some where else say Goa or something. I have seen some of the iron man races in TV and always wondered how people do it.. I will have to keep wondering and wishing about this.. as, I don't even come anywhere close to the requirements..

First priority will be given to runners with a proven ability to run at least 130 kilometers in 24 hours - 250 kilometers in 48 hours, and who have run at least 500 kilometers in 6 days.

A minimum of 42.195 kms to be completed everyday and not more than 8 hrs of rest allowed at a stretc
