Kaveri Trail Marathon, with its rich 12-year old history, has a special place in the hearts of runners.

Very few people know that the Kaveri Trail Marathon started off as a training run for the first edition of the Bangalore Ultra. Conducted in October 2007, it attracted 247 runners, all of whom were training for the Ultra. The central idea: run in tougher circumstances than the Ultra, and you would be able to run the Ultra easier.  The premise of ‘Train hard. Race easy’ was drummed into our minds by the race director of the Ultra, Madhu Avasarala and team Runners for Life, set out to look for such a run route. Support came from our friends, the Bangalore Hash House Harriers. The then grandmaster of the Bangalore Hash, Jaganath Raju, (Jugy to those who know him), a veritable human GPS, showed us the route along the canal near Srirangapatna. Our imagination aflame, we immediately decided to pick this spot for our next adventure!
