Frequently Asked Questions
When is your 2023 Event?
Our 2023 event is scheduled for Saturday, November 25th, 2023
When and where can I register for your event?
Online registrations are open on this site. We will close registrations until we have hit the maximum limit of participants or October 22nd, 2023, whichever is earlier.
Will your course be the same for 2023?
While our event will be held near Chikmagalur, the 2023 course is different from our previous editions. We will publish the final course details by end of September
Why have you changed qualification criteria? I see that there is now criteria for 30K also.
Our qualification requirement is for runner safety. From our experience in 2022, we realised that many 30K runners had not done suffiicient research on our event and the degree of difficulty. We decided to add qualification criteria for 30K also in order to ensure that our participants are adequately trained and ready for our event.
Where can I find my results and finisher certificate?
You can find your official results on the web site of our Timing Partner. Use your name or Bib number to search for your result. Finishers can download their Certificate from the link provided.
Where do I find 2022 Race Photos?
Our 2022 Race Photos are available shared on Flickr
- Click the Search Icon (lens image) on the upper right of the Flickr Photostream page
- Enter your Bib Number and find your photos
There are only a few photos of me? Why?
Our team took over 12,000 photos during the event. Many photos were discarded for quality, lighting or because they were duplicates. There are over 6,600 photos shared across 13 albums.
There are a few hundred photos that we could not tag because the bib number was partially visible or hidden. Please go through the albums and it is likely that you will find more photos of yourself.
Travel & Accommodation
I want to plan my accommodation and travel in advance? Where can I get more information?
You can reach out to Swaroop on +91 99003 06090 (WhatsApp) for assistance. He is a resident of Mallanduru and can organise your accommodation if you share your requirements.
What is the Asia Trail Master Series?
The Asia Trail Master is an annual trail running championship series in Asia with 30 races across 15 countries. Runners accumulate points and qualify for the ATM Championship Final.
The Malnad Ultra was added to the ATM calendar in 2022 and we are excited to be a part of this calendar again in 2023
Are you a UTMB Qualifying Race?
We are a member of ITRA and our past events have been certified by ITRA and have qualified for UTMB points. Since we are changing the start location and course, we will need to submit for fresh certification to ITRA. We expect to complete this process by end of September.
How do we qualify for WSER?
The Western States Endurance Run is the world’s oldest 100-mile run and is held in June every year. Finishers in our 100K category will be eligible to apply for the WSER lottery for their 2025 event. Note that this eligibility is for 2025 and not 2024, because the WSER lottery is scheduled in early December and they are unable to include our results for 2024.
