Yesterday took place the 2014 Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon. This tough trail marathon takes the runners from the Everest Base Camp (5364m/17,598ft) to Namche Bazaar (3446m/11306ft).
The whole race is run on rough mountain trails. High altitude and difficult terrain makes this marathon a race of its own kind.

The first foreigner was Robert Celinski from Poland who managed to cross the finish line in 5:08:05.
