    Hi, I will be in Nepal from 3-27th Nov and I was hoping to do some trail running in Kathmandu or outside if there are any events on. I am thinking about 3 hrs max per day. If you have anything suitable or can recommend a club/ guide that would be great.
    Thanks for your help.

      Hi Everyone and Susan.

      We’re releasing Today the first virtual race that sync automatically the runs to create a final valid leaderboard. We have partenered with Oxfam Intermón and 100% of donations will go to them to support Nepal. After a few months we still need to collaborate.

      If you want to know further do not hesitate to contact us at bruno@runator.com

    • thehalfhog says:

      No, just running long stages together (or at your own pace), carrying some/much of your equipment yourself.

    In Nepal, why only marathon run event is conducted from time to time.. Why not any other sorts of athletics events like short races, hurdles, high jump, throw events and so on. If events are conducted why there is no advertisement for it. Dont Nepal want to put their emerging athletes in front of world?

    i hope to get reply soon.
    Thank you.
