BMF was a single-day challenge, including a trail run, cross country cycling and downhill cycling,that celebrated the country’s runners and cyclists in one event. “Three popular sports on a single day and at a single location. It was a never-seen before event organised in India,” - Redbull.com
The entire off-road track has been built by hand over two months. Our aim has been to create tracks of European standards, and let Indian runners/cyclists practise on it so that they can excel in international competitions.
The competition is open in three categories — trail run (10 km), trial run half marathon (21 Km) cross country MTB (30 km) and downhill MTB (1 km). They have been further divided into Open Men, Open Women and Elite championships. There are prizes worth Rs 2 lakh to take away.
This will be the most toughest trial running track in India with climbs across four hills which are totally rocky and stair climbs too. Train hard have fun on the race day with picturesque view and tons of fresh air to feel rejuvenated.
An amateur can gain tons of experience and pro's can challenge their limits across the three formats , block your calender and register for the race.
