Event Information

                        SOLANG SKYULTRA 2024 - THE DNF RACE I 5-6 OCT, 2024 I SOLANG VALLEY

The whispers of the Solang Valley call not to the weak of will, but to those who crave a trial of body and soul in the purgatory of Hell. Ladies and Gentlemen, The Solang SkyUltra - an ego-altering crucible forged in the unforgiving heart of the Himalayas of Solang Valley returns. Mind you, this is no mere race; it is a chance to transcend your limits, to be shattered, remade and reborn.

Just to keep you aware, SSU is about Skyrunning – where the earth meets the heavens. Trails claw their way upwards, inclines defying gravity, demanding everything you have and more. Thin mountain air bites like ice with every gasping breath while you gather your leftover will to navigate through boulders and your conscience tells you to surrender. This is the domain of the Solang SkyUltra.

If the legends speak true, over the past 8 years, the Indian ultra-trail running community has found its battleground in Solang. This year, at the 9th edition of the SSU, in the first week of October, the DNF Race awaits. Will you join the ranks of those who dare to DNF?
