Runners Village

Runners Village

When we say it’s not just a Marathon, but an ADVENTURE!!

we mean

A true mountain experience

Runners Village

The Runners Village is the idea of extending co-running to co-living during the duration of Bir-Billing Marathon (9th to 11th April 2021)

This year to give runners a memorable experience we have associated with few of the best campsites in Bir in the middle of Dhanari Forest. The Runners Village this year will have – Bamboo Cottages, Jungle Safari Tents, Swiss tents, Dome Tents to choose from.
From Luxury to budget travellers, there’s an alternative for all.

The Runners Village is located in Gharnala, 4km away from the Paragliding Landing site in Bir, in the middle of Dhanari forest. To make the commute easy for runners, there will be a shuttle running every 2 hrs between the camp and Bir landing site.

The village isn’t just about living, but about co-living. To celebrate the spirit of running and camaraderie, there will be various activities and events planned. Some of them are a music, talks by accomplished athletes and adventurers, local treks, paragliding and mountain biking. There will be a platform for runners to share their extraordinary running or travel stories. We will also be screening some movies that most of you haven’t seen before.

Known as the one of the world’s best paragliding destinations, Bir boasts of what’s known as a great set of conditions for flying. So much that the 2015 Paragliding World Cup was organised here.

One needs to experience a flight first hand to understand what brings hundreds of paragliders from across the world to Bir every year.



What better way to round off your visit to the hills than to explore the area around the Bir valley. The area has many lesser known thrills and experiences that are waiting to be discovered. The numerous adjoining villages are interconnected with a series of crisscrossing trails and pedestrian paths – creating fairy woodlands for as many adventures as you have time for. Hop on a mountain bike or bring out your hiking boots… Get out and explore.



For the convenience of runners, we are arranging a shuttle bus service from Delhi/Chandigarh to Bir and back. This will be an air conditioned Volvo bus only for runners departing at a fixed time from Delhi/Chandigarh.
