Inspire India brings you the world’s highest Ultra Race… With a start point elevation higher than any point on any Ultra Race in the world! Racers must report one week before the start of the race for acclimatization. For 2022, there will be three events; 444km solo self-supported, 600km solo or relay, and 900km solo or relay. The 600 and 900 km events are now recognized as RAAM Qualifiers for the solo racers. SPECIAL NOTE: Being a High Altitude Race, all racers will be required (mandatory) to report in Leh between 8-10 days before race start. While this is for us to establish that racers get the bare minimum acclimatization, it is highly recommended that racers arrive 12-14 days in advance to ensure that they acclimatize satisfactorily. This is particularly necessary if racers are flying directly into Leh. Option is to reach Srinagar or Manali and drive to Leh, in order to have a slower transition to high altitude.
