Are you up for the challenge?
The Everest Marathon is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the highest marathon in the world. It's not just the race that's demanding as reaching the start line at 5184m, just below Everest Base Camp, is a challenge in its own right!
Your run will take you across glacial moraine, down scree, along narrow tracks and wire suspension bridges, through rhododendron forest and along trails high above the river, to finish at the Sherpa town of Namche Bazaar at 3446m.
To acclimatise safely and naturally, we have a 15 day trek uphill to the start, with the opportunity of climbing the two 5,500m summits of Gokyo Ri and Kala Pattar or visiting Everest Base Camp.
As part of the trip you'll have time to experience colourful, exuberant Kathmandu before flying up into the lush greenery of the high mountains at 2,700m. On the final full day in Kathmandu, we've organised a tour of two of the most popular World Heritage Sites, the Hindu Temple of Pashupathinath and the Buddhist Stupa of Swayambhunath.
There have been 17 Everest Marathons since 1987 and the next is going to be just that bit different - starting with the name, as we're now the Original Everest Marathon.
