This was a very fun morning. Around 50 children of varying ages lined up – in one very very wide line – to start a one kilometer race. One kilometer but at 3500m/10,000ft of altitude! The participants of the 2013 Manaslu Trail Race lined the course to support the runners. Why the race? “Fun!” says […]
Last January (2014) four Nepali runners took part in the Vibram Hong Kong 100 race. The result has been written about earlier, but Tirtha Tamang in first, Bed Sunuwar in 2nd, Ram Bhandari in 6th while Ram Khatri has to drop out with a calf problem. It was a great day for these runners as […]

200 or so pages of inspiration. From running with injuries, to unlocking the secrets of why were “born to run”. Watch this video!

The Himal race is what some people call fun and others call ridiculous self-abuse. The 2010 race started with a kora, a circumambulation, of the sacred Mount Kailash before entering Nepal, running through Humla and Dolpa before ending at the famous viewpoint of Poon Hill, close to the Annapurna range. All in all a great […]
