Tracing the ancient ‘Silk Route’ through the Karakoram Pass

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Mr. Suman Chettri, an esteemed alumnus of St. Paul’s School from the illustrious batch of ’98, for achieving a remarkable 5th position in the grueling 122km Silk Route Ultra. The Silk Route Ultra, renowned as the most challenging of the Ladakh Marathon races, stands as the pinnacle of high-altitude running, pushing the boundaries of human endurance.

Tracing the ancient ‘Silk Route’ through the Karakoram pass, connecting North West India with Central Asia, this race embodies the spirit of historical trade routes, testing athletes in a profound way. The course winds through the awe-inspiring Nubra Valley, known as Ldumra or the valley of flowers, painting a breathtaking backdrop for this arduous endeavor.

This ultra race specifically caters to veterans familiar with the demanding Khardung La Challenge and beckons ultra runners and Ironman athletes to measure the extents of their resilience. Mr. Suman Chettri’s impressive feat in this challenging race underscores his dedication, skill, and the indomitable spirit of a Paulite. Well done!
