Chasing the peaks…
Wow!! After long wait ‘The Brazil 135’ accepted and invited ME for 135 miles Ultramarathon –the infamous race in the mountains in January 2014 (summer in Brazil). AN INVITATION ONLY Run, the Brazil 135 Ultramarathon is considered the most difficult continuous race in Brazil and held on the most difficult segment of the Caminho Da Fé. A 135 miles point-to-point course on the Caminho Da Fé, with only 10 miles of relatively flatter terrain, 30,000+ feet of cumulative ascent, 28,000+ feet of cumulative descent. The course route is on the Mantiqueira Mountains – ( A Sub Range of the Andes Cordillera ).
The Brazil 135 Ultramarathon was inspired in concept and in spirit by the Badwater Ultramarathon in Death valley, California and was created by Dr. Mario Lacerda a veteran ultra runner.
Coach Michael Coleman will guide the training, and get ready team Saurabh Bhasin, Anil Gorti, and Dhananjay Motwani for long trail runs.
I’ll post more details about the race and the course.
