Many runners warned me about the torturous and scary 9KM trail loop between 82-91 in the Malnad Trail Ultra. In fact one of the runners at 82km rest area warned me not to go without a water bottle as it is a hard climb. I don’t carry a bottle and had to find a empty soft drink bottle that I could re-use.
That is when I thought ‘this must be a lovely fun climb’ as I enjoy climbs. And this turned out be the best section of the Malnad Trail Ultra. When I mentioned this to Brijesh Gajera, he said that I must be the only person to love this section!
