Team - La Ultra

Chetan Sehgal

Chetan Sehgal is part of the La Ultra team since 2012. His love for running, mountains and adventure is what got him HIGH with La Ultra. Chetan take pleasure in putting all the pieces together that make not only this race, but every other running event we do, awesome! Dr. Rajat often calls Chetan ‘full time at La Ultra‘ 🙂 It is hard for people to accept but it actually takes round the year work to do all that we do. Chetan have been running, trekking and exploring routes in the Himalayas for over 10 years and it’s all the experience and passion that he like to bring to everything we do at La Ultra, because it deserves nothing less.

Mukul Oberoi

Mukul Oberoi is a Senior HR Leader by profession and Running is one of his many passions. Having had the good fortune of growing up in a boarding school that laid special emphasis on physical education, running and a variety of sports were an integral part of growing up and staying active and fit have hence become a habit.

In 2013 Mukul came across one of his Seniors from School during the school’s 125th year celebrations. This senior, the race director of La Ultra Dr Rajat Chauhan, from there on became his running Coach and a good friend. After getting bit by the running bug and running long distance for a few years Mukul started crewing at La Ultra and that got him interested in the world of Ultra Running. Along with running, he has been Volunteering at La Ultra as a lead crew and an integral part of the Core team since.

 

Mukul is a fitness activist who believes that amongst the foremost requirements to be happy and productive is the need ‘To be fit’. To play his part in this mission he has been training kids and adults in overall fitness and helping runners start, restart or get better at their running.
 
Having run several event races across distances (Half, Full and Ultra Marathons) Mukul now mostly enjoys ‘running for Joy’ and while due to the Pandemic races have been cancelled, running is on. He has during the lockdown run marathon and ultra marathon distances within his apartment as an experiment to see if he gets bored of it, so far he is still enjoying it.

Vijay Dutt

VJ bhai, as we call him, is our pillar of strength when it comes to moving things on the ground. Logistics in Ladakh is a massive challenge. Add the nitty-gritty of a multi-day, multi category, unpredictable La Ultra – The High to that and we have a complex challenge that requires ingenuity across the departments of race organizing. Hailing for Katrain, in Kullu Valley, VJ along with his partner Neetu formed Adventure Infinite back in 2003. They have been organizing mountaineering and trekking expeditions along with a multitude of activities across Himachal Pradesh & Ladakh for almost 2 decades. You will rarely see him not smiling. There is a reassuring and a calming energy that always accompanies him wherever he goes.
