1st edition of Kolkata Trail Run 10K 2016 made a gala entry on 10th January 2016

In a unique run organized by Sportiz, runners in the city had a 10 km competitive sprint in the east Kolkata wetlands. Christened “Kolkata Trails 10K”, the event took participation from men and women above 16 years of age which was open for only 100 participants in its first edition.

On a misty winter morning on Sunday, the runners hit the trail from Godrej Waterside IT Park off Ring Road in Sector 5, Salt Lake, Kolkata. The concept of trail run was new to most of the participants as it was east India’s first trail run. Contrary to what runners get in road races like marathons and half marathons, trail run does not offer smooth roads but different kinds of stretches from broken tar, gravel, jumps, single trail to village paths.

Even the likes of Jaidev Raja and Tushar Tripathi, the only ultra runners from Kolkata were ready to test their mettle in the trails of Kolkata. East Kolkata Wetlands offered the best of nature and runners could enjoy a route away from all the pollution of the city.

We were overwhelmed by the response to the event and we plan to hold a half marathon distance in the trails soon
