About the event
The Great Mawla Ghaati Ultra
How was Shivaray's Mawla (मावळा)?
Shivaray's mawla looked plain naive, wild body and strong lean muscular built, face completely tanned due to the scorching heat, turban wrapped on head, wearing dhoti upto the knees on his feet and dirty messy sadra – a long linen shirt, shield on his back, swords on his waist, proud mustache on his lips; The masculine attitude, stentorian as the mighty Sahyadri!
Without a sword in his hand and no shield on his back, there was no evidence that they are soldiers (Mawla). If enemies looked at these guys from afar, they would think that this young men, had just harvested a field and confronted him, what would a farmer face harm them?
But when this men wished to jump in the battlefield pulling out their sword (shamsheer) and lunging in to the battlefield, swinging in his limbs, speeding like a cheetah, gazing at the eagle and with the power of a hundred elephants at his wrists.
It was beyond the imagination of the enemy that the simple-looking men could take on such a formidable form, that within the shock, these men would have cut down more than half of the enemies soldiers.
What is Ghati (घाटी)?
The twisted routes throughout our mightiest Sahyadri ranges all over Maharashtra are proudly known as Ghati!
Our Pride the Mawla used to stay in these ghati and was also known as ‘ghati’.
This time it will be the slippery side of Sahyadri ranges which are never ran or walked by humans before! (obviously excluding our route marking team) the route of The Great Mawla Ghaati Ultra is an incredibly tall and craggiest mountain trail, with ZERO loops!
You will compete the most highly impassable parts of the mighty Sahyadri!
In the course of this race, you will embrace nature and feel sunny delectable.
The race will be conducted within the limits of Bhor-Velha-Pune.
All the 4 categories is that all of the races will be held in month of June 2020, It will be sweltering hot with the first showers during the run.
