The Satara Hill Half Marathon, organized by Satara Runners Foundation, has been held every year since 2012 in the historic city of Satara. An AIMS-certified run, the SHHM is usually held in the first half of September attracting enthusiastic runners not only from India but also from all over the world.

It is also called the “Ultra Half Marathon” for its challenging route – which is scenic and beautiful but definitely NOT easy. With the course being a tough one, the SHHM might not give many runners an opportunity to run their PB, but it definitely will give a runner high never experience before and would be a feather in any runner’s cap.

Not only does SHHM hold the Guinness World Record for “Most people in a mountain run – Single mountain.” with 4801 runners, but it has also been nominated by Runner’s World (magazine for runners) as World’s Best / Must do / Bucket List Half Marathon races – not once but 3 times.

Given the challenging nature of the hilly route, the race organizers are usually prepared to handle any medical emergency. But they also are strategic partners with IIRM (International Institute for Race Medicine which promotes the best practices in marathon racing) – currently, the only race in India to be a member partner.

The organizers base the race on a theme every year taking up a cause – the theme for the 12th edition of SHHM 2023 was Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” meaning “The World is one Family.”
