ADR Ultra 2018 – A Night Running Fest

Amdavad Distance Runners aka ADR has a mission statement – ” Run Long…Live Strong..”. The statement epitomizes the spirit of a distance runner. ADR wishes to invite everyone into distance running and bear all the mental and physical health benefits attributed to the activity.  We literally want to give the rampant lifestyle diseases the boot ( or should we say sneakers).

As a part of the same mission, we at ADR are organizing an amazing Night Ultra event in the pristine township of Ahmedabad – ADANI SHANTIGRAM.

So join us, experience the joy of running, enjoy the camaraderie in an event which is literally “By the runners..for the runners”

Event Objectives

  • Propagate running as a fitness activity and motivate more people to take up running.
  • Aligning with the Clean India initiative, having a clean & green event. To accomplish this we will have a zero litter policy and no plastic water bottle distribution at Hydration Counters.

Event Categories

  • 4 HOUR RUN
  • 8 HOUR RUN
  • 12 HOUR RUN

Minimum participation requirement in each category is 15. Minimum distance to be run is 6 laps ie approx 25 km.

Which category should I participate in?

As a participant, it is important to realize that this is not a race. There are no podiums or timing chips here.

4 Hour Run – This is targetted to 10k and beginner half marathoners. This is a perfect opportunity to stretch the mental barrier and cross the distance and duration you have done in a single run so far

8 Hour Run – This is targetted at experienced half marathoners and beginner full marathoners who want to go the distance  and then open up the possibilities for a cracking Full Marathon in the coming season

12 Hour Run – This is targetted at experienced full marathoners and beginner ultra runners who get a perfect opportunity to strut their stuff. Go well beyond 50K and brag about it for life!!
