What Is It?
Here’s something exciting for all you adventure enthusiasts! The Bangalore Mountain Festival is a two-day challenge with a trail run, cross-country cycling and downhill cycling. With an off-road track entirely built by hand near Nandi Hills, this is bound to be one of the toughest trail running tracks in India. Plus, there are prizes worth INR 2 lakhs to be won!
Who Is It For?
Cyclists and marathoners unite! Amateurs can take this chance to gain some experience and the pros can try their hand at three different formats. So, tell your friends and mark your calendars.
Why Should I Go For It?
We’d go for it primarily for the one-of-a-kind experience that no other trail run event in India offers. But if you are all about the adventure, the competitions are open in these categories — 10km trail run, 21km trail run half marathon, 30km mountain terrain biking and 1km downhill mountain terrain biking. It’s also divided into Open Men, Open Women, and Elite Championships. There’s also full event photography so, now, you can get a really cool Facebook profile image!
