Is the race over yet? There are no results on the official website. Do you know if Nattu completed the race?
Yes, he did. 46 hrs 22mins. It is on the Badwater website.
Quizman, Arun Kumar Bharadwaj left another comment on my post, probably directed at you. I think you will be able to understand it better. Here is the comment - "Dear friends,Thank you very much for your appreciation and all the motivating words. I have set some goals in ultramarathon and will strive to ascend.Shri Nattu ji, yes there are a few more Indian names in ultrarunning but they live either in US or Europe. If you know the ultratrunners living in India please let me know. Also please send me the email addresses of other ultrarunner runners you know. I will be more than happy to meet with them. I know only 3 = Gaytri Bhatia (US), Rajat (England, now came back to India. He was the medical officer of Banglore International Marathon) and yourself (from the list). Shri Tirtha Kumar Phani has given up the ultrarunning, once I talked to him around 2-3 years ago but unfortunately missed his phone no. now. He is living in Kolkata.Dear Nattu, I you live in USA and have all the suitable atmosphere/company/diet etc. needed for continuing ultramarathon, you can imagine the struggle of an ultrarunner mainly which he does with his inner own. And it is very tough in our circumstances where there are many discouragements than encouragement. Only I know how I am continuing it. Any way, we have to move forward, move forward , move forward; no matter what the situation is . At least only one thing should be with us, and that is ourselves.Wish you all the best for your coming 48 hr race in December. Please say hello for me to Dr. Andre Lovy (72 hours). We are good friend, ran together in Mexico and Australia (2 times). In any trouble during the race, relating to injuries or mental fatigue, please don’t hesitate to tell him. He is expert in this field. Also please say hello to Martina from Germany. Gratitude,- Arun Kumar Bhardwaj, waiting Shri Nattu beyond 150+ miles in 48 hours race. "
