Why is the registration fees for outstation runners higher than local satara district runners ? Why this Discrimination ?
This event is organized by 5 Hills RUNNERS CLUB, the members of which are local runners from the Satara District running community. These are people who do this as a passion on a voluntary basis, while balancing their regular jobs as Doctors, Teachers, Businessmen, Entrepreuners, Shopkeepers, Housemakers, Students and so on. As of now, the Satara District local running community is a relatively small and slowly growing group and we are making efforts to increase awareness about the marvelous world of running and its benefits among the local community. We are facing an uphill task in convincing the people in our predominantly rural area, to register for a run by PAYING MONEY. We are still asked why one should pay money to run. Some people go to the extent of saying that THEY should be paid for running !!! There are a few people who even doubt and question our motive behind organising such a wonderful event. But we march ahead because we know that we are doing a good job. This discount to local runners has always been there in our event. It is no mean task to organize an event of this scale without raising the necessary funds. The entire money that comes from registration goes into organizing the event are ploughed back into making the event better from year to year. It’s not that outstation runners are being over charged. They know and believe that the overall experience is worth the registration fees being charged . It’s the locals who are being offered a substantial discount , to motivate them to register in increasing numbers. So, when you register as an Outstation runner , you can feel proud and happy for having promoted and helped the development of the sport in our local community.

This being a hilly run, training on slopes / inclines is recommended as a part of your training. Please check out these links for helpful tips and training regimes. Half Marathon Novice 1 Training Program | Half Marathon Training Schedule for beginning runners.
You have mentioned that one should include “hill-runs” in the training. There are no hills in my area. How should I train for the same, if I want to run and train for the Ravine Run Mountain Marathon ? Please suggest an alternative if possible.
You can look out for manmade slopes like parking lots, ramps etc. You can also run on a Treadmill with an inclined ramp. Alternatively, running up and down stairs in a building (gradually increasing the number of stairs and speed) is also a good strategy.
