PPN Ultribe Paderu 2022

The Ultribe Story                                       

Fellow Ultribers,

The overwhelming participation followed by appreciation and criticism received by the first edition bear testimony that the first edition of Ultribe Paderu was a world class race that was tough, technical and gratifying in equal measure. This has propelled team VTRA to work harder and comeback with a second edition- Ultribe Paderu 22. So, mark the Calendar, pull out trail shoes, fill hydration packs and start preparing for the second edition of the only Ultra Trail Running event in twin Telugu states on 11 Dec 22.

For those uninitiated, VTRA – the organisers of Ultribe-Paderu are a not-for-profit group dedicated to foster the sport running. Founded and led by a team of passionate runners, who have a varied experience in running, specifically trail running, they have now come together to give the same kind of experience to other passionate runners. With this specific purpose in mind, the team has decided to organize Ultribe-Paderu as the first Trail Ultra running event in AP & Telangana.

 

The event will be conducted around Paderu, a sleepy town located at a height of approx. 900 mtrs in the district of Visakhapatnam. Blessed with lovely and serene valleys, picturesque hills and waterfalls, Paderu is a mandal headquarters and situated at a distance of 100 km north-west of Visakhapatnam in the serene Eastern Ghats.

We assure you that we are working hard to make the event bigger and better in its second edition. In addition to hitherto conducted distances, a new category- 50 miler is being introduced. Most of the road sections are being removed and the route will be 90% trail. Active liaison with Govt. authorities and village bodies is being maintained to ensure better experience to runners. ITRA and UTMB points will be awarded like previous edition.  A detailed plan for route marking is also prepared.  We will provide GPX files of the route, elevation profile and all details in due course.

With second edition, Ultribe Paderu will give you and experience of a lifetime, covering trails, mountain peaks, coffee estates, streams etc. The idea is to both challenge as well as give a sense of satisfaction to the runner. And repeat it every year…………….
