The Satara Hill Half Marathon ( SHHM ) is organized by the SATARA RUNNERS FOUNDATION, a nonprofit organization, formed by a group of like-minded people from all walks (and Runs 🙂) of Life, who came together to organize a “little run” in their home town Satara for the first time in 2012.
Well, they’ve indeed come a long way since then, building it into one of India’s most loved running events!
The team draws its strength from a dedicated base of volunteers – avid runners, who are members of the SATARA HILL RUNNERS – a local community of fun-loving and adventurous souls, who spare no efforts towards making it a Runner friendly, yet World Class event.
