Seen the gay abandon of a child running? It is pure unadulterated bliss. Pursuit of this happiness has resulted in exponential growth of running community across the globe.
Vizag too is there on the map. Many running groups and associations are bringing people together and prodding the society towards path of fitness and happiness. Beach-road, stadiums and Dolphin hill – morning or evening, there are people running. Vizag Navy Marathon and Bay Marathon are the most awaited events every winter. Over past few years, Vizag has evolved into a runner’s paradise providing podium finishers for events like La-Ultra, Deccan-Ultra and Malnad Ultra. However, absence of a trail running event, in and around Andhra, has been rued by these athletes.
We at VTRA (Visakha Trail Running Association) are making an endeavor to bridge this gap. We are a not for profit group, each member a working professional with varied experience of trail running. VTRA is dedicated to bringing trail running closer to people. For those uninitiated, the nature and type of route differentiates trail from road run. It is unpaved, passes through hills, streams and valleys, involves steep gradients and is to be navigated using markers. Negotiating a trial run demands not only physical endurance, but also mental alertness and quick reflexes. What trail running offers is beautiful views, interaction with nature and a mini-adventure. Many participate in trails for outings where friends and families bond and become fit together.
VTRA is hosting its flagship event ‘The Ultribe Paderu’ the first Ultra-Trail run in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on 12 Dec 21. Through Ultribe Paderu, we are providing an opportunity to run through the hills and meadows of Paderu, a village 100km from city of Visakhapatnam. The trail route will take you to the top of Vanajangi (almost 5000 feet), coffee plantations and sparsely populated tribal villages. There are three categories of trails - Flagship Event (50 km+), Hill Challenge (25 km+) and Vanjangi Conquest (10km+) to suit all runners.
We are putting our heart and soul to make Ultribe-Paderu a memorable event for you. So what are you waiting for? Register with friends and families on http://ultribepaderu21.iq301.com/and meet us in Paderu for an experience of lifetime.
