The past year has been challenging for marathon enthusiasts, who had to train under restricted conditions and had limited opportunities for participating in events. While humanity has endured one of most devastating years in recent history, the world entered 2021 with renewed positivity and hope to successfully fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This spirit of perseverance has encouraged live sports to gradually resume across the world under strict health and safety guidelines. And as with every sportsperson, when it comes to runners, no obstacle or challenge can deter them from their passion for running. And so here it is! The Tata ultra-marathon, a 50 km affair to remember, is all geared up to be held on March 28th 2021. Certified by the Athletics Federation of India, AIMS and International Association of Ultrarunners [IAU], Tata Ultra Marathon comprises a 50km Ultra Marathon that will be open to men and women to participate with a limited registration of 200 slots. Runners can also choose to participate virtually in the 35 km and 50 km and run from anywhere between 28th March – 4th April, 2021.
