    Urgent email – hi there
    I’m writing an article for the above UK based magazine about the explosion of ultra running in Nepal and India and on whether, the country will produce the next series of ultra running champions.
    I’m urgently looking to chat to someone for some quotes for the piece about how the scene has grown, what kind of people are getting involved, restrictions on racing for Nepalis etc.
    Would you be available to Skype or FaceTime this week?
    I look forward to hearing from you asap.
    Best wishes

    Hello there,
    I am Pratik Rajkarnikar an event organizer of Himalayan Rush Triathlon race that takes place in Himalayan foothills of Nepal. I was not able to post a article about our triathlon race is your website. I hope you could help me with that.
    Himalayan Rush is an annual adrenaline-filled destination triathlon that takes place in Begnas Lake, Pokhara – the only triathlon organized in the Himalayan foothills. By combining the thrill of trail running, cycling and fresh water swimming with the breathtaking view of the Himalayas surrounding Pokhara, we strive to give each participant a uniquely Nepali experience, sense of achievement and adventure among local participants. 
    From the first edition in 2012 with only 30 participants, to the sixth in 2017 with 100 plus participants, we have gained popularity among both national and international communities. Though the participation number is small, it is a specialty triathlon that has gained accolades from across the world. The seventh edition in March 31, 2018 looks set to be the biggest yet with an estimated 250 participants.
    Furthermore you can find our website and Facebook link below.

    I look forward to listing our event in your calendar aswell. 

    Have a good day!

    Greetings from Tricycle Magazine! We’re a NY-based Buddhist publication with a circulation of approximately 50,000 (

    I came across Mira Rai’s incredible running career through the BANFF Mountain Film Festival, and would very much like to get in touch with her to discuss her life and running career. We’d like to feature a profile interview with Mira in Tricycle’s Summer 2018 print issue.

    If you could put me in touch with her, or pass along her contact information so that I can reach out directly, that would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks so much,

    I wanted a Ultimate Direction AK Mountain Vest 3.0 that a runner wears during the race to carry water and his stuff. Do anyone have an idea where I can buy it here in Kathmandu?

  23. Howard Dengate says:

    My wife and I have just trekked from Shivalaya to Lukla via the Numbur Cheese Circuit, the Dudh Kund Circuit and onwards to Lukla direct from Saharsbeni. On the last leg, through some very wild country, there were both red and blue markers which we were told were put there for two separate ultramarathons, but I cannot find any details about these two races. Can you tell me where I can find more details about these races please as I make public my free tracknotes that are very popular.

    Thank you

    I was wondering if there was any footage of Mira Rai running her first ever ultramarathon, when she took part in the 50km Himalayan Outdoor Festival race you guys organised? I believe it was 2013 or maybe 2014.

    Thank you!

    I am registered for the Annapurna 100 and was talking with the organizer about getting the ACAP and TIMS permits ahead of the race to do some hiking. This was agreed, but no I haven’t got any news for three months and the race is coming up.
    Thanks for the reply
