3650m Elevation Gain
Once you have the taste of sky
you will forever look up.
3450m Highest Altitude
Skyrunning is an extreme sport of mountain running above an altitude of 2000 meters where the incline exceeds 30% and the climbing difficulty does not exceed Grade 2. The term was first coined by Italian mountaineer Marino Giacometti in the 90’s. Skyraces are the most popular mountain races in the world and are governed by the International Skyrunning Federation.
With the mighty Himalayas right in our backyard, there’s no better way to bring this sport into India. The Hell Race brings you the Solang SkyUltra; a grueling and brutally testing race through the rugged, jagged and mean singletrack technical trails of the Solang Valley. The only peace that you’ll get in this race is the all-around views of the mountains. Lace-up, suit up and get training; mentally and physically because if you aren’t ready, this is the kind of race that’s waiting to eat you alive. Let’s see you run this race. If you’re tough enough.
The Solang SkyUltra has been certified by the ITRA – International Trail Running Association and now will be awarding points to finishers. To those who’re interested in accumulating points for international events, this is further reason to register.
A wild story of human endeavor and sheer will power.
Once you have the taste of sky, you will forever look up.
– Leonardo Da Vinci
