Mongolia – In August 2015, for the 17th time already, adventure seeking runners from all over the world will gather at the shores of Lake Hovsgol in Northern Mongolia for a very special experience: the Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset 42k and 100k ultra trail marathon. Until March 1st, 2015, runners can book a discounted early bird travel package on the event website www.ms2s.org. “It is a whole week of exploration with horseback riding, kayaking, hiking, fishing, sleeping in traditional Mongolian Gers – and of course running”, says race director Nicolas Musy. The race on August 5th will be as challenging as it is beautiful. Runners pass by yak herds and wild horses, shamanistic Ovoos as well as Mongolian yurts and horsemen, in one of the most pristine and spectacular areas on this planet. Amongst participants, the race is known as the world’s most beautiful 42k and 100k run. A lakeside single track through woods and over windblown lowlands; steep, rocky mountain passes with breath-taking views; river valleys and marshy forests; seas of wildflowers. The accumulated elevation gain/loss for the marathon distance is 2.255 meters, for the 100k course it is 3.365 meters.
