Runners' Village

The Runners Village is the idea of extending co-running to co-living during the duration of Deccan Ultra (8th to 10th February 2020) in a makeshift village for runners and those who accompany them for the event.
 
Here’s some more information on the village:
  • It will include accommodation for 300 people.
  • These will be Eco-friendly tented accommodations with all basic amenities including toilets, charging facilities, sleeping bags/blankets, and food.
  • Two meals (freshly prepared) and evening snacks will be provided to all the guests every day during the duration of their stay.
  • The village is a temporary community being raised especially for the event. After the event, it shall be dismantled, and its space returned to nature, until next year.
