The route for the Satara Hill Half Marathon has been described in many ways by past runners. Its been called Beautiful, Scenic, Blessed with Nature’s Bounty, a run in the clouds etc…. But one thing is for sure – NO ONE has ever called it “Easy” !
Not without reason is it known as the ULTRA HALF MARATHON. Veterans who have run some of the most difficult distance races over the world have described this course as a tough nut to crack.
The route has total ascent of 413 meters and total descent of 425 meters. Because of the challenging terrain, a new runner who is not aware of the terrain finds it difficult to plan his run to achieve his target completion time. This app is developed to help the runners pace themselves through the roller coaster terrain of PNB Metlife Satara Hill Half Marathon.
This application can be used by runners of PNB Metlife Satara Hill Half Marathon who want to finish the half marathon distance in a specific time. The Smart Pacers feature of the application is configured for 21.1 km route and hence will not give accurate feedback to runners running other distance.
So, get ready, Put on your ear-phones and press Play button as soon as you cross the start mat and start running.
Smart Pacers with finish times of 2:00, 2:15, 2:30,2:45 and 3:00 will guide your pace throughout the race.
