Mustang Trail Race
The Mustang Trail Race mixes challenging running on centuries-old trading trails, with plenty of downtime for rest and cultural exploration of caves, villages, monasteries & Hindu temples from Lower to Upper Mustang.
The Mustang Trail Race is an 8-stage, 170 km, high-altitude trail race through the fairytale landscape of the culturally Tibetan region of Nepal, hidden just behind the stunning 8000m Annapurna Massif.
It mixes challenging running on centuries-old trading trails between traditional, oasis-like villages at altitudes from 2900 m to 4,300 m! There’s plenty of downtime for recovery and exploration of the culture: caves, monasteries & Hindu temples.
Run with a light pack, eat well & sleep in comfort in ‘tea-houses’.
