The Mountain Ultra Marathon

The First & Only Self-Sufficient Multi-Stage Mountain Ultra

The Ultimate in Mountain Racing in the heart of the Himalayas, Nepal.  The Mountain Ultra offers a tough and exciting race through the worlds largest mountain range, taking in ancient paths and routes originally set by the Ghurkhas as they conquered Kathmandu.   The 220km course winds its way through some of the most picturesque villages and mountains in the world.  An awe inspiring mix of rivers, switch backs, trails and mountains to wow the most experienced runners and newbie alike – this is one adventure filled footrace.  As the world’s first and only self-sufficient mountain ultra-marathon you will need to carry your entire kit with you across the mountains including your sleeping bag, food for the entire race and a minimum of 2.5 litres of water which can be refilled at checkpoints and water stations along the way.  Carrying your kit over this extremely demanding and technical course, combined with high altitude and unstable weather conditions ensures that you are tested to your limits as you complete this amazing race.  With 38000ft of vert and peaks of over 8000ft this is a race to test the spirit, mind and body and what better place to do this than the Nepal!

Each stage will finish in one of our purpose built tented villages, hot water will be constantly on the go to make sure you’re able to prepare your meals the moment you need to and our famous medical clinics will be ready and waiting to deal with any problems you pick up along the way.  We will give you every chance to make sure you succeed in reaching your goal of finishing this wonderful challenge!
