The Kangra X-Country Run 2019- The Kangra Run, also known as Kangra X-Country Run, is Coach Ravinder’s first destination run. Coach Ravinder together with Ultimate Survival Campsite is proud to present the third edition of this run to be held from 26th – 28th April, 2019.

The Kangra Run was conceptualised by Retired Major R. C. Sharma. He is also the man behind the Ultimate Survival Camp – the camp that supports the runners’ stay and food for the run. The campsite is close to the historic Jwalamukhi temple and the beautiful River Beas. Interestingly to get there you have to go through 2kms in the dense forest. And is approachable only in a 4X4 vehicle.

Mark 26 April to 28 April 2019 in your calendar for 3rd edition of Kangra X-Country.

About Kangra Valley

Kangra valley in Himachal Pradesh is surrounded by the majestic Dhauladhar range. The area around Kangra is known for its ancient temples and picturesque surroundings. It makes for a charming valley that is a magnet for the city-dweller and a bigger magnet for the beat up city-runner.

Kangra X Country – An ITRA Certified Event

International Trail Running Association (ITRA) is the governing body for trail running races across the globe. It is indeed a matter of pride to have the running route of Kangra X-Country certified by ITRA and also have this race listed in their race calendar. You could find more information by accessing the link given (https://itra.run/race/2019/7259-3rd-kangra-x-country-run/18365-kangra-x-country-run-48k).

Certified by the International Trail Running Association (ITRA), The Kangra X-Country Run & MTB Challenge mixes constantly-changing surroundings with near-ideal running surfaces. On this run, you go through jungle trails, dirt roads of a village, there is a km of running on the Beas river bed, you pass through the sun lit green fields, and then get back on the trail. Needless to say- this makes for an interesting cross country route. Important to note that there isn’t much elevation on this 16km course. The USP of this run is its variety of surfaces, changing scenes of nature and the ideal running weather! The beautiful Dhauladhar range is constantly in sight!

The participants will get a t-shirt, finisher medal, certificate and winners get cash prizes.

The first edition of the Kangra Run in 2017, attracted 100 runners from all over the country. 2018 had about 300 runners enjoying the Kangra valley and 2019 already has more than 200 registrations. We find it interesting to report that professional runners from Eithopia and Kenya along with Indian Army Jawaans had participated in this run.

Every year, with an increasing love for this run – we are introducing new categories. For the ones who are slowly building their aspirations towards ultrarunning, there is the 48K category. For the ones, who want to soak in the valley slowly, there is the 3-hour Forest Trail Walk that is open to kids and families. This is a great opportunity to make it a running cum family vacation.
