Thanks a lot to Tyler Wasson for writing this post about his experience of Nepal’s Stupa to Stupa Ultra Trail Race in 2017. Here we go! I signed up for this race at the last minute and within a week I found myself climbing the 365 steps to the starting line at Swayambhunath – also […]
It should be a compulsory walk for every visitor to Kathmandu! Shivapuri is to the north of the valley and easy to get to with public transport, something like Rs 20 in a white hiace van.
Change your shoes every (500km or so) say the manufacturers. If you run on roads and still heel strike, then maybe the advice is not as self-seeking as it seems to a sceptic like me. Since I started running mid-foot (simply by pushing both nipples forward by 1 cm) it seems the shoe has become […]

Then the second hard part is the 5km to […]
