The Malnad Ultra is going to be one of the most exciting ultra races of 2017! Organised in the less trodden coffee estates and forested areas of the Malnad region in Kemmanagundi of Chikkamagaluru District, Karnataka, this trail race goes through some of the most enchanting and nicely challenging terrains one can imagine. It is designed to provide the next-level experience for marathoners who are bored of city runs and want to graduate to the next level. The course will take you through miles of coffee plantations with majestic jungle trees such as Silver Oak, Teak, Rosewood, Pepper, Cardamom etc. Apart from the varieties of birds, one can look out for Malabar Flying Squirrels, Porcupines and other small animals.
