We thought it will be great if we had an ultra dedicated to women, and bring out all the men we know to volunteer, in support of women in their lives, and friends, and women whom they may meet for the first time at the race. The idea is to show solidarity in the face of adverse condtions for women runners to thrive, issues they face while training, or find themselves being discourage by someone in their close circle whether it is family, friends or colleagues. We want them to know that their freedom is no one’s to give. It is theirs and we want to let them know that asserting that right is their solid right and that they are not alone.
So here it is: All women ultra is set for December 14, 2014, in the Nilgiris, second edition in 2014 – Nilgiris Ultra
If you choose to stay on and help out the next day, there is a all-men ultra on Saturday, December 13, 2014.
If there is a cause you want to support on this day, and if it is women specific, more power to you, we would love to hear from you and do our bit to help/enable you to raise those funds by promoting and speaking about your cause. Do write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your story with us.
