The IAU, The Athletics Federation of India (AFI) and NEB Sports (responsible for the race organisation) invite all Asia and Oceania Federations to send their Athletes to the events. The GIS and Invitations will be send in due time. It is our expectation that this Championship will be the starting point for a new stage in the development of ultra-distance in the region. India has never held an international ultra-distance championship organised by IAU.
"It is our pleasure to welcome the International Ultra Runners for such a prestigious event hosted by AFI in India.” - Nagaraj Adiga, CMD - NEB Sports
