Description:

Annapurna 100 – Golden Trail Series 2019 Final

This is the 14th Annapurna 100 event and we’re delighted to add the Annapurna Trail Marathon as the Grand Final of the Golden Trail World Series. There have been several iterations of the routes in the past responding to road building, the time of year in which the race has been held. Three years ago, a principle was formed to “run towards the mountains” so that everyone who comes to run the Annapurna 100 gets the best chance they can to see the spectacular Himalayan mountains in front of them on the course.
Race area: Mardi Himal

A quick introduction to the race area. This is the Mardi Himal trekking area and this is where you’re going to be running! Given the altitude at the locations shown on the link above, it is much more likely to be fast hiking, which perhaps gives you more time to appreciate the views while above the tree line. Yes, we go to over 3,500m and yes this is high, but there is no real need to acclimatise before the race, you’ll only spend an hour or two at this altitude before descending again.
