About Border Ultra 100 Miles Hell Race
The race was organized in the memory of 1971 Longewala battle warriors. It is considered as a Hell Race in view of extreme weather conditions (35 degree temperature during day and 4 degree during night) and almost 50 km of a roller coaster route.
The route passes through the desert with no shadow for shelter. The hydration points are 10 km apart during the run, which makes it even more challenging.
