The BNP Endurathon terrain has been rated as tough. The 25km race involves doing the same loop twice. This year the absence of any rains ensured a higher suffer score. Even some experienced runners and pacers failed in meeting their target time.

The scenic route winds from the beginning of the Borivali National park all the way up the hill to Kanheri Caves. 87% of the participants described the route as scenic and panoramic.

The organisers also conducted a Running Matters Workshop and a complimentary post race leg massage for the runners which was greatly appreciated by over 85% of the participants.

The organisers should consider using another timing service provider for future editions.

Races in Aarey are not easy, the hilly terrain makes the overall route tough. Also the fact that a Half Marathon entails doing two loops of the same hills makes the event tougher. This year the absence of any rains ensured a higher suffer score as compared to previous editions. This is definitely not a event to target a personal best.
