Failing is not a crime; lack of Effort is.

Mussoorie Urban Trail (MUT)

Race overview

The idea behind Mussoorie Urban Trail is to take you away from the usual path/road you run on, to a setting that will introduce you to the beauty of trail running. The 21 Km route that’s back and forth from Hathipaon close to Mussoorie towards Bhadraj Temple and back is a mix of paved path to rocky jungle trail that goes through a lush green forest cover. You touch 7,200 ft. of max altitude at Bhadraj Temple top. The race is scheduled for 6th October, Saturday 2018.


The run will go through Clouds end and Dhudli Village that is sparsely populated, towards Bhadraj Temple that is of great local significance. For the inaugural edition, we will be opening 3 categories-

— 11 Km

— 21 Km

— 42 Km

The run will be held on 6th October when temperatures will be pleasant. However, an early morning start and 7,200 ft of max. altitude will ensure windy & chilly weather for a part of the race for which runners need to be ready. A list of compulsory items to carry will be updated on this page in coming time.


Stations with aid support will be provided at a gap of 2-3 kms. These will be water refill points with big capacity water cans. No 200 ml water bottles will be provided, so carrying a handheld sipper or hydration pack is compulsory. This is done to avoid generating plastic waste and littering the area.


We will strictly follow the cut-offs for the 3 categories for safety reasons-

  • 11 Km – 2 hrs
  • 21 Km – 4 hrs
  • 42 Km – Final cut-off 8 hrs. Need to complete the 1st half (21 Km) in 3 hrs 45 mins.
