November 26, 2015 (Thursday) To be confirmed

Race day in 12 months

Asia / Nepal

Mount Everest

Marathon

The race starts at 6:30 AM

Charity Trail Mountain

The race starts at Gorak Shep (5184m), just below Everest base camp, and finishes in the Sherpa ‘capital’ of Namche Bazaar (3446m). The course is a measured 26.2 miles/42 km and, although it is basically downhill, the trail undulates and there are two steep uphill sections.
There is likely to be snow and ice at the start of the course. The terrain is very varied: boulders, grass, sandy scree, stone staircases, trails through forest and exposed paths which contour the mountain sides. The trails will seem quite good to those used to mountain or fell running but there are additional hazards by way of narrow suspension bridges and yak trains. The race course is not marked and it is the responsibility of each runner to learn the route on the trek up.
