Ruggedian Shivaji Raje Survival Ultra Run 2019
”Do you have a Shivaji Raje in you?”
About the Concept:
Every year Ruggedian pays a grand tribute to Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Doughty maratha warriors through Shivaji Raje Trail Run. The run has drawn its potion of inspiration from historical event of Shivaji Maharaj’s escape from Panhala Fort on a stormy and showery night. The valiant Maratha soldiers braved the enemy to save their warrior king – Shivaji, under the leadership of Baji Prabhu Deshpande, at Pawan Khind. Thus, we have reserved the theme, duration and distance of the race to go hand in hand with the historic significance related to it. The idea fuelling of Shivaji Raje Survival Ultra Run is to combine the cause of fitness with the love for Maharashtra and its legendary chapter of Maratha history.
About the Run & Route:
Exciting times ahead! Buckle up for the toughest, enthralling and self-supported Ruggedian Shivaji Raje Survival Ultra Run, with no volunteers to extend you that bottle of glucose or pat your back at regular intervals. Shivaji Raje Survival Ultra Run encourages you to be the champion of self-motivation and traverse on. Pack your own backpack with a day’s supplies, and set on an adventurous and pulchritudinous trail, boosting the adrenaline rush factor.
Gushing through the lush green vegetation, the racers continue to swirl their way through the huge trees, standing tall and elegant, of the region. There will also be single track – extremely narrow stretch of pathways barely allowing only one person to pass at a time. However, the trail is not all savage. There will be farmlands that will come along the way of the racers, which they have to cross, of course without stepping on the yield. Trampling their way through the village back-roads is an experience that few other trails would have to offer. The race ends at Pawan Khind. A place that is sure to take your breath away with its mesmerizing exquisiteness.
The Shivaji Raje Survival Ultra Run race track could not be anything else than the history embedded trail from Panhala Fort to Pawan Khind.
