As we all know, the entire world is currently going through a health crisis owing to the COVID19 pandemic. India is currently under a 21 day lockdown while many countries have cancelled or postponed large public gatherings including running events at a later date.
Sinhagad Epic Trail, which was scheduled for 28 June 2020, has been cancelled owing to this global outbreak of COVID19. As Corona virus continues to spread in the community at a large scale, we all have to fight it out together. So, after consulting with the WGRF volunteer team, fellow race organisers, local authorities, and medical professionals, we have come to the decision of cancellation.
WGRF have always put the health & safety of all our runners, their families, volunteers, hired professionals, associated vendors, medical team, rescue team and sponsors at a high priority, and will always continue to do so in the future.
So, registered participants will either be 1.) handed out a refund minus the processing fees, OR 2.) given an option to transfer their fees to later event of WGRF. We will be sending out emails communicating this to all the registered participants in the coming week. The above solution is the best that we could do to adhere to this crisis.
Registrations for Sinhagad Epic Trail 2020 have already been stopped on all platforms. Now we will continue to work towards the planning of SRT Ultra 2020 scheduled on 12/12/2020. We are excited to introduce 2 new running categories of 80 km & 111 km, for SRT ULTRA 2020, details of which will be declared once the lockdown period is over.
WGRF and our family of volunteers feel heartbroken with the fact that we will not meet you all at this year. But as a part of the Indian ultra & trail running community, we want you all to stay safe, stay healthy, so that we look forward to celebrate life with you all at the end of 2020.
Please practice social distancing and maintain proper hygiene.
Take good care.

The Jagdish Temple is raised on a tall terrace and was completed in 1651. It attaches a double-storey Mandapa (hall) to a double-storey saandhara (with a covered ambulatory) sanctum. The mandapa has another storey tucked within its pyramidal samavarna (bellroof) while the hollow clustered spire over the sanctum contains two more, nonfunctional stories. To reach the main shrine, one must climb 32 marble steps, intercepted by a Brass image of Garuda in the end, being the mount (vahana) of God Vishnu. Shri Jagdish Temple is the most beautiful example of Hindu Iconography, consisting of three stories of hand carved stone, with a steeple nearly 79 feet high and is the largest temple of Udaipur.

Rangana Fort is one of the gem from the list of Forts in Kolhapur. It took us whole day to explore this fort as motorable road till base village is just for the namesake. If you follow the map and want to see complete fort then for finding all remnant's you will need time. But it's worth to visit this beauty.
Samangad is a hill fort in Kolhapur District, Maharashtra. It is 790 m above sea level. The fort is situated on the oval-shaped top of the hill. The eight-foot-high wall of the fort which encircled the hill top is still intact. Earlier several cisterns cut out of the rock ensured a plentiful supply of water to the fort but by 1957 most of them were in ruins. This is one of hidden door of the fort for emergency exit. .
