THE HIMALAYAN CROSSING / THE SPITI / THE GOMPA RUN

AUGUST 05-08, 2020

STORY OF HIMALAYAN CROSSING

The Himalayan Crossing – Four best elements of this race – Unmatched Stunning Himalayan landscape, high altitude, rough terrain and extreme temperatures.  It’s a celebration of the mountain spirit. These mountains sing to you with their silence, enchant you with their color hues, and silence you with their majesty. True to its name, the route criss-crosses through mountain ranges of The Himalayas, taking you through Kinnaur and Spiti Valleys before ending on one of the toughest passes on this planet – The Rohtang La. This route cuts through mountains and splendid landscapes, is surrounded by snow capped majestic peaks, goes over two of the highest passes, Kunzum and Rohtang, extends through wide valleys, camps by high altitude lake, The Chandra Taal, and takes you to the highest village in Asia, Komic.

So what makes this route a must-do as we make it out to be? We may be masochistic to some extent, to want pain and suffer these climbs, terrain and landscape, but, we believe no runner is left untouched by the beauty, serenity, and tough terrain of the route, surely asking for a repeat!

BOOK YOUR TICKET AND ACCOMMODATION, FOR RUNNERS AND CREW.

NOTE THAT IN 2020 ALL RACES ARE SOLO CATEGORIES. The 2020 race starts in Manali and finishes in Kaza. Each year the race reverses its course to offer a whole new challenge to its runners.

THE STORY OF BHATTI LAKES:

BHATTI LAKES holds a special place in the hearts of every Globeracer. It is the first in many aspects, including being the first 100mile race of India, and also a UTMB qualifier. Many ultra runners took their first steps on their ultra running journey at Bhatti. Bhatti trail never seizes to amaze us, changing its form and appearance every year, ensuring a runner who returns to the trail has a unique experience. The trail looks and feels different during the day and night, and no matter how laps one has to run to meet their category requirement, it continue to draw the runner in, challenge the trail runner in them, and at the finish, runners, volunteers and organizes alike are looking forward to its next edition.

In 2017 we have introduced ‘The Home Loop’.

No two runs are ever the same on trails, and Bhatti Lakes’s ever changing terrain and landscape is the best example of what one experiences out on a wild trail that refuses to be tamed. True to our vision to keep you working hard on trails and no less an athlete than any other in the world, we bring to you the “Home Loop’, one that will challenge you to master trail running.

The concept of the HOME LOOP is developed keeping in mind the crazy times clocked by some of the best trail and ultra runners around the world. With Indian Ultra Runners slated to represent the country in Asian Cup and having been to Ireland recently, Globeracers, true to its commitment to the Ultra running community to keep up the challenges on home turf, brings to you the concept of a set time per loop, resetting the clock after each loop. Each 20Km loop is given 2 hours 15 minutes to complete, with a 10 minute interval between successive loops. Only those who complete the preceding loop in the set time will get to compete in the loop that follows.

Come experience this unique City Trail race that is the flagship of Globeracers and the playground of many.

GLOBERACERS’ BHATTI LAKES ULTRA is a UTMB point race

      • The finish line – 10 am (4 hours into the race)
  • 50 kms and 100 kms participants are allowed to bring 2 and 4 crew members respectively for pacing and/or support. Please ensure organizers are intimated at least two weeks before the race and register your crew members so they can receive their personal crew tags on the day of the race at the race venue. No crew members will be allowed on the route without registration or their crew tags missing.
  • 100 kms and 75Kms participants should carry mandatory night running aids such as headlamps or torchlight, reflective vests or armbands and whistle.
  • Drop bags are allowed for all race participants.  All drop bags must be clearly marked with your name tag provided, bib number and aid-station number to which it is assigned.
    • 100Kms – 3 drop bags
    • 75Kms – 2 drop bags
    • 50Kms – 1 drop bag
  • Aid-stations will have water, electrolytes, salt, sugar, bananas, oranges, salty snacks, honey, candy. At some aid-stations our partners/sponsors make hot tea available throughout the race.
  • You must bring your own bottle. We will have only large containers of water and you will need to refill your running bottle/hydration pack. Remember that aid-stations are 6.25kms apart, and between 10am-4pm sun is strong and dehydration can be a cause for concern if you do not carry water in between aid-stations.
