Become A Mawla Runner


The Great Mawla Ghaati Ultra Trail Run

Hosted in the Sahyadris, GMGU is a trail race that celebrates the superhuman qualities of exceptional mountain climbers and fighters of the Mawla community. Men from the Mawla community, led by Tanaji Malusare, climbed the tall walls of the then known Kondhanpur Fort, and restored it to the Maratha Kingdom of King Chhatrapati Shivaji Raje Bhosale. In the battle that led to the supreme sacrifices of Tanaji and his soldiers, the grieving king renamed the fort to Sinhagad as he said -“We got our fort, but we lost our lion.”

Through this race of the Jumping Gorilla Mountain Trail Run Series, it is our humble attempt to share and retell the story of this significant and super heroic feat of the Mawla Infantry of Maratha Army. While signing up for the race, you chose to dedicate their runs to the memory of these great warriors.
