This is a 5 day Ultra event covering a total of approx 400 kms.
Each day will have an ultra distance run of about 80 kms with a night halt.
Each day has a cut-off time of 18 hours. If a runner does not reach this cut-off, he/she will be asked to pull out of the race.
Each day the race will begin at 05:00 hrs
Cut-off time for finish shall be 18 hrs ie 23:00 hrs.
There will be 3 moving aid stations to cater to the runners which will stock water, electrolyte, fruit, dry fruits, chips and packed lunch. These moving aid stations will also have basic first aid kit including muscle relaxant spray.
Accommodation for participants will be in a Shamiana / traveller lodges that will contain beds. If the number of participants is more an arrangement for additional tents may be made. Participants will need to carry their own toiletries and other items of daily use which will be transported.
ELECTRICITY There will be facilities to charge mobile phones.
MOBILE NETWORK COVERAGE The distance covered is long and while most places have networks with sufficient signal strength, often the signal is poor and 3G/4G coverage is low.
Each day has a cut-off time of 18 hours. If a runner does not reach the night halt before the 23:00 hrs cut-off, he/she will be asked to pull out of the race.
The organisers will transport an 'Overnight Bag' to each midday halt and overnight campsite for the participants while they undertake each day of the Dandi Salt Challenge. This means that participants will have light bags and should be able to enjoy their running, rather than carrying a heavy bag.
The Overnight Bag must be 20 Kg or less. We insist on adherence to this limit for all participants for three important reasons:
FAIRNESS: Every participant has the same maximum weight and approximate sized bag.
SAFETY: We need to lift and manoeuvre several hundred bags twice per day.
TRANSPORT: Bags must be very similar sizes for optimum stacking and packing whilst they are transported AND it should be easy for our volunteers to handle.
Please note that the maximum weight of participants’ bags will be strictly enforced. We will be checking all Overnight Bags at the race start.
The runner must have completed atleast one ultra marathon of 75 kms to qualify for the race.
It will be hot and humid and hence Drifit Tee and shorts are recommended.
Make sure you pack the following items in your bags:
Toiletries, Deodorant, Anti-blister creams, Torch, Mosquito Repellent, Nightwear, Gels, Energy Bars, Mobile charger, Power bank etc that are specific to your requirements.
