CANCELLED: Unfortunately, the situation in India with COVID-19 is deteriorating further and we have decided to call off our 2020 Edition scheduled for November 7 & 8th.

The Malnad Ultra is a challenging trail run through some of the most enchanting and exciting terrain that one can imagine for a run. We offer three categories over 50, 80 and 110 Km on our course in the Western Ghats of South India.

Our volunteer-driven and not-for-profit event is certified by the International Trail Running Association and is a UTMB® Qualifier. Organised by GIREM and hosted by Coffee Day Global Limited, the course takes runners through seven coffee estates and provides magnificent views of the Bhadra Reservoir and Bhadra Wildlife Reserve in the Western Ghats of South India. These estates have a history of over 150 years and are home to over 100 plant species and 50 animal species.

The origin of the name Malnad is attributed to Male meaning Hill and Nadu meaning Land. Being an Ultra, all of our race categories are Beyond 42 Km.
