Go Heritage Run Badami Run Routes

We’ve received a lot of questions asked about the routes, elevation details and sites of significance en route and this post has the answers. Our thanks to IHCN for their inputs on these run routes. The routes include traversing along a stony trail with elevation changes so do exercise caution.

If the weekend turns out to be rainy, there’ll be a waterfall that can be seen too. Further along, as you gain elevation, you will see some stunning views of Badami town and its surrounding hills. Turn around at the 2.5K mark and retrace your path back to the Badami museum to collect your very special Badami-inspired finishers medal!

    Are the runs timed? Or does ‘non-competitive’ mean the timing isn’t measured? Thanks.

      Dear Bhavana,
      Registrations for our runs typically start 3 months before run date – please sign up to our mailing list so you can get information as soon as we launch registrations – http://www.goheritagerun.com/email-updates/.
      We typically help participants with suggestions on the best way to get to the run destinations and accommodation there. In some cases, we negotiate discounts for runners too – all information is sent via email in the days prior to the runs.
      Our runs frequently see young participants and we encourage them too – the parents/guardians have to sign a disclaimer.
