I’m a runner from San Francisco visiting Kathmandu, Nepal from May 24 until the 31st. Looking for a running buddy / guide. I’m good for anything up to 25 miles. Would love to explore but reports here are gangs / robbers / Mao-contents are molesting / robbing / kidnapping / Mao-aligning tourists. Suggestions?

I am coming to Nepal in 2 weeks (May2 – May 11) and was hoping to do a long loop from Jiri up to Thame, across Renjo Pass and back down…
I”d love to discuss this loop with someone!
I look forward to hearing from you,

Go ahead! Ask your questions here and we will do our best to answer…. to pre-empt, trails are all fine, just got to be careful acclimating. 9 days is not a very long time for that. Check this for a guide: http://www.hitt-initiative.org/mla/?page_id=261

I will be in Kathmandu for six weeks starting Sept. 16th and I’m looking for a running group/buddy to train with. I am currently running about 30-40 miles per week (around 6 miles/10k per day), but I hope to work up to 50 or 60 miles per week. Do you have any suggestions for who I should contact?

Hello! I was interested in coming over for one of the stage trail races! I’ve considered the manaslu vs the Himalayan 100mile stage race. Could you give an opinion on route, scenery, difficulty, support, etc between the two? Thanks! Lori

Hello Lori – unfortunately I am both biased and unqualified to answer. a) I am an organiser of the Manaslu Trail Race and b) I have never done the Himalayan 100mile! Perhaps I should advise that you do both! Below I have linked some runners’ feedback, plus a report and photos written by one guy, Mark. We enjoy organising the race and hosting the runners – sure is a beautiful place. If you have more questions, or want me to put you in touch with a past runner(s) then mail me at: email@example.com Richard Feedback: http://manaslutrailrace.org/manaslu-trail-race-review/1823/ Report: https://trailrunningnepal.org/manaslu-trail-race-report/ Photo: http://markbrightwell.shootproof.com/gallery/manaslutrailrace/home

I am looking to do the Everest Marathon in November 2017 but if the Khatmandu Ultra Trail race is a week after Everest then I would be looking to stay out and do this too. Do you have any provisional dates for this yet and if not when will you be releasing them?

Same date, 9th Dec or so.

I’m Zairin, event organizer for Annapurna Mountain Marathon. Just launch the event few days ago & would like to know how can the event be listed in this website. Thanks!

Congratulations! Please do invite some Nepali runners to compete in your race, and are free as an organiser to donate to the trail runner travel fund which has helped runners like Mira Rai, Bhim Gurung etc! Send pictures and text to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get it on the site.

Vlad Morozov is setting off on a 1000km solo and unassisted run across Nepal this September. He is planning to complete the challenge inside 3 months and he is fundraising for Nepal Youth Foundation UK in the process. He has never visited Nepal before and has planned his route from satalite mapping and old Chinese military maps. Any advice or assistance you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

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.
