Are you tough enough? Do you have it in you? 

Some would crib that it is longer, 10.1 to 11kms. Others would believe that the clock is moving faster than it should.  

If you are looking for excuses, this isn't for you.  

Below is a video of recce done on 11th June 2016. More videos will be updated from a recce done on 16th April 2017.

If you fancy having the world's best tea before the run and yet again world's best pan-cakes post the race, then don't think, just come along. There is only one-way to find out, by getting to the start line.

The 'run' would get over at the famous 'Chaar Dukaan' in Landour, Mussoorie, which aren't Chaar any more.   

Start is from that tree next to Duster. In British times, this was the toll point where toll was based on the mode of transport, mule to elephant.

Registrations fee is waived for the first edition. No, there will be no papers (aka certificates) and pieces of metals (aka medals) for your attempt. Only an awesome experience. 

Please get your own supplies. At the start, please pick stuff from Haathi bhai. Then the next shop is only after 5.5 kms. Then at 7.3 kms, 8 kms and at 9 kms there is a whole market for you. At the finish, you'll have seven shops that have been lost in translation and are called Chaar Dukaan.
