CourseQualificative2016_EN_utmb150pxThe first ultra distance trail race in the Kathmandu Valley was held in January 2014 in the Shivapuri National Park and it was a great deal of fun. The routes are being finalised for 2015, but expect three distances of 80km (we’re completing scouting now), 50km, 27km and an 11km course with 1100m climb! The courses will be professionally marked by our hero, Ryoichi Sato from Japan.
