Description:

My husband Mark has run in a few different countries and he turns up at the start of the race and at the finish we go back to the hotel – job done. This run is so different! This is about really experiencing the country we are in and opening our eyes to a different way of life and a new culture. You will also build up friendships with like-minded people and take home memories which will last forever. It is only a small group of 20 runners because the beauty of this is that it is non-commercial and this makes it unique and intimate. The village is about a two and a half hour drive north of Kathmandu,in the Bhimkori region. The village stands at an altitude of 1800 meters (similar to the top of Ben Nevis) and the run will take you up to 2400 meters.
It is all off road (no tarmac in sight for miles) You will twist and turn onto little tracks and pass through tiny villages at the foot of the Himalayas to the amusement of the locals! In November the village is at it’s best with mustard fields in full colour, orange trees in bloom and clear visibility to the snow capped mountains above. It is truly spectacular.
