Experience

Escape the concrete jungles of urban cities and head to the Western Ghats where an enchanting & challenging terrain offers you an unparalleled trail running experience. Malnad Ultra run is organised on the less trodden coffee estates & forested areas of the Malnad region in Chickmagalur District, in the state of Karnataka. With historic treasures of over 150 years, this region is home to over 100 plant species and 50 rare animal species like the migratory median Egret. Apart from bird watching, you can also feast your eyes on the Malabar flying squirrels, Porcupines and other small animals.

To register for the race please go to the Malnad Ultra website

BEFORE YOU BOOK PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THIS INFORMATION: Malnad Ultra is held in the untouched and remote coffee estates of the Western Ghats. As such the choice of accommodation as well as the services you can expect from them is fairly limited.  We have inspected the properties and put together a program that offers 'runner conveniences', however the accommodation and services are best not compared to resorts you may be used to at other holiday destinations. Plus given the limited resources, it is important that you set the right expectations from the accomodations and take things in your stride.
1. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE NO TWIN BEDS IN ATTIGUNDI REGION. ALL ROOMS OFFER DOUBLE BEDS. TRIPLE AND QUAD ROOMS ALSO REQUIRE THAT YOU SHARE THE DOUBLE BED WITH ANOTHER RUNNER. EXTRA MATTRESSES ARE ON REQUEST BASIS ON ARRIVAL ONLY AND NOT GUARANTEED. WE ARE OFFERING SHARING BED OPTIONS ONLY WHERE KING SIZE BEDS ARE AVAILABLE. TO ACCOMMODATE AS MANY RUNNERS CLOSE TO THE START WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER SINGLE ROOMS AT ATTIGUNI ACCOMMODATIONS.  

2. DUE TO THE LIMITED INFRASTRUCTURE ALL TRANSFERS ARE BASED ON FIXED TIMINGS BEFORE AND AFTER THE RACE. IF YOU FINISH EARLY YOU NEED TO WAIT FOR ALL OTHER RUNNERS TO FINISH.

Before You Go

Things you need to know

FAQs

Q.1 Can I take the stay only package leaving out the transfers from Bangalore? Open or Close

Unfortunately our trip inclusions are not available on partial service basis. Stay and transfers cannot be separated from each other.

Q.2 I would like to take only race-day transfers. How can I do so? Open or Close

Due to the limited vehicles we have, we can offer race-day transfers only to those who are taking the transfers from / to Bangalore with Active Holiday Company.

Q.3 I am not comfortable sharing the room with a stranger. Can I get a single room? Open or Close

As of now we are unable to offer single rooms since the supply of rooms is very limited. Offering single rooms to runners will mean that many runners will be left without space close to the start and finish (which is also at least 1.5 hours drive each way.
The rooms we are offering are only large king beds which can accommodate two people comfortably. You can also let us know if your friends are travelling with you so we can pair you with them.

Q.4 How can I book multiple runners in the same booking? Open or Close

Please proceed with your booking based on the bedding configuration you need. On the next page, after you have added your pick up point in Bangalore and your race category, you can add another person by clicking on 'Add to Booking' button on the left side top.
Please be sure to add the names of all the runners on your booking to ensure that their bibs are delivered at the hotel.

Q.5 I am running the 30K can I have a late departure from the hotel? Open or Close

Due to the access to the start point and the time taken from all accommodation options there is no option for multiple departures for different race categories. The start area is well equipped to relax before your start.

Q.6 I am running the 30k. Will I need to wait for a long time for my return transfer after the finish? Open or Close

Due to the time taken to do a round trip from the finish to the accommodation options (which are also spread out in different directions), it is not possible to have different departure timings for different race categories. The race start / finish area has a lovely picnic style atmosphere and has all the facilities you will need to wait for a few hours. Please get to the start line prepared to wait for a few hours after your finish.

    Malnad Ultra - Better planning needed

    i ran 110km and im not a good runner, so travelling 2 hours before and after the race was very difficult.
    if you had kept all the 50k runners at kadur, we 110k guys wouldnt have had to travel so much after running almost 24hours. Also you could have avoided that early morning trip to kadur.
