OOTYULTRA course was chosen and designed considering the following elements,
- Start the event 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 is measured using standard GPS watches and definitely not accurate distances. Visit the individual run category pages listed below to know more about the accuracy of the route.
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, and 60k categories. Runners are requested not to rely on their GPS markers but to follow the kilometre sign boards kept at an interval of 2 kilometres throughout the course
