The Lonavala venue for the Tata Ultra Marathon was chosen in the backdrop of the undulating slopes of the Sahyadri range, view of picturesque forts and Pawna Lake enough to uplift motivation levels

The challenging undulating slopes of the Sahyadri range give every runner an opportunity to test their endurance level to the fullest. The climate was pleasant to start the run. The breath-taking views of the beautiful Bhushi Dam, INS Shivaji, Lions Point, Shivling Point, Monkey Point, PethShahapur Fort, Morgiri Fort, Majestic Fort of Tungi, Pawna Lake view and Tikona Fort was a treat for the run.

These hills have a historic association with the Tata Group’s own ultra-marathon, which began 150 years ago. The Founder, Jamsetji Tata, built India’s first hydroelectric plant on these hills, over a century ago, to provide clean power to the Mega City – Mumbai.
