The Run the Rann 100 miler in Dholavira, India proved to be the most unique and challenging ultra race I have ever done. The combination of GPS orienteering, desert heat, course terrain (including cliffs, 3″ thorns and salt flats) as well as the runners I befriended made for a one of a kind experience that I will never forget.

Unfortunately only 10 of use made it out to India as two of the invited runners didn’t manage to get their visas sorted in time.

Last year days before beginning my 2000km run across South Africa I was asked if I would be interested in taking part in Run the Rann new 161km race in India – you can imagine my excitement, but at the time I wasn’t able to get my head around making a decision like that as all I could think about was how I was going to cope with the next 32 days of running.

Tell us about the toughest race that you've ran. Oh, the most recent Run the Rann - it was the toughest. The terrain was really rough. Through salt pans, fossils, thorn laden rocky mountains, sand etc. Each step you took, there was something to surprise you, including living surprises like snakes. Generally, during really long runs one tends to go brain dead after running for so many hours. This race didn't give me that opportunity.

In this first year event I was amazed at how much detail was pulled together. In a short two months Gael and their team managed to create a small village, draw an international field, scout a route, hire catering, timing, gather media and sponsors and create tourism to the distant town of Dholviria. It is not often that I attend a first year event, as I find it best to let the RD's work out the bugs. The opportunity to visit India through the lens of running drew me in and I was not disappointed.
