A run starting from the Golden City of Jaisalmer and ending at the battlefield of Longewala, via Ramgarh and some ruined, evacuated villages. The route has almost all the likes of any famous 100 milers and 100kms. The participants are exposed to the elements of nature, face to face while fighting their own demons mentally as is the case with any ultra, philosophically speaking. Also, a great opportunity for the runners to bring home their Personal Best times in either 100 mile or 100kms because the elevation gain is about 650mtrs and 250mtrs respectively; a pan flat course.


Why is it named The Border?

The race route is close to the Indo-Pak border. It passes through the famous dunes, vast landscapes, open spaces, long stretches of roads passing through the remote and tiny villages. Jaisalmer is a world heritage site that stands on a yellow-ish sandstone and is crowned by the ancient and uber-popular Jaisalmer Fort. The town lies in the heart of the famous Thar Desert.

Longewala is a border town in the Thar Desert in the western part of Jaisalmer district. It is very close to the border with Pakistan and is most notable as the location of the Battle of Longewala during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 (December 4-7).120 jawans of the 23rd battalion, Punjab Regiment, held the post for the entire night until reinforced the next day (watch the movie Border if not yet done so). It was a decisive victory for the Indian Army. We devote this race to the martyrs and the brave soldiers who confronted the enemy the entire night. Plus, this is a really good terrain for a 100 miler and 100km race.
