How accurate is the OOTYULTRA course measurement?

OOTYULTRA course was chosen and designed considering the following elements,

  • Start the envet in OOTY and move all the runners to the outskirts and the most beautiful sections of OOTY
  • The route should be non-repeating, as much as possible
  • Finish the event at another beautiful and a convenient location

The OOTYULTRA route for all distances categories are measured using standard GPS watches and definitely not accurate distances. Visit the individual run category pages listed below to know more about the route accuracy.

NOTE:With these distance inaccuracies in mind, we have carefully chosen the cut-off time to help most runners achieve their finish goals in the 15k, 30k, 60k categories. Runners are requested not to rely on their GPS markers but to follow the kilometer sign boards kept at an intrval of 1k throughout the course
