The Mountain Ultra Marathon

The Mountain Ultra Marathon

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

This is the Tian Shan Mountain Range, Kyrgyzstan. It’s one of the largest and least explored mountain ranges in the world. The Mountains of Heaven.

The Tian Shan range is vast, stretching over 2,500km from Uzbekistan in the west to China in the east. It boasts summits of 7,500m and is home to the largest glaciers outside the Arctic poles.

This mountain trail run is technical and requires resilience at altitude, but the beauty of the deeply carved glacial valleys amongst the looming snow-capped peaks is truly breathtaking.

This is the Mountain Ultra. Follow us to an adventure.
