The marathon route takes you to most of the spectacular sights of Kathmandu, some are still damaged as result of the earthquake but still worth seeing. You will pass Durbar Square in Patan, the center of Kathmandu and Swayambhunath also known as the Monkey temple because of all the monkeys that live there. You will cross Boudhanath and see Pashupatinath where the Nepali people hold cremations in the open air. The ashes are spread in the holy Bagmati river which you will also cross. We expect all participants to respect the Nepali people and their rituals along the course. Anyone not following these rules will be removed from the marathon. Participants must follow orders from volunteers, police and other members of the marathon organization. The route will be marked but only partially traffic free, so it’s not going to be a race to improve your personal best. You are however contributing to the rebuilding of Nepal. The Kathmandu Urban Marathon is organized to support the local economy. Any profit of the marathon will be used to support projects from the ColdFeet Foundation (www.coldfeetfoundation.com) and 112Nepal Foundation (www.112nepal.nl Dutch website) together with PA Nepal and Educational Capacity Building in Rural Nepal
