SRT Ultra Marathon is a thrilling run of the ancient route which connects the Sinhagad-Rajgad-Torna forts, more popularly known today as “SRT”. This route has become the magnum opus of trail and mountain running 53K marathon routes of Pune, Maharashtra and its surrounding areas because of its historic and aesthetic importance.The SRT route has been used in the past as a catalyst in commuting, trading, and farming apart from being the battleground for many kings who ruled these mountains. Of these, Rajgad fort was Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's capital in the 17th century Maratha empire.
The SRT trail is now a heritage walk, with the magnificent Sinhagad, Rajgad and Torna forts standing tall in between this route, each reflecting stories of the rich and glorious past of Pune.
To summarise in short, in this day and age, a new stage is set - a new battle to conquer these ancient Sinhagad-Rajgad-Torna forts in the form of a high voltage, endurance filled mountain running marathon in the Sahyadri range!
