It’s all over! the first race of the soon to be famous Kathmandu Trail Series is completed.

It started, now it’s finished – see you at the next race everybody!

Posted by Trail Running Nepal on Sunday, 19 February 2017

Just over 190 people registered and 160 of those actually got out of bed to run.

Mira Rai could not be there in person, but was on a cleverly designed lifesize selfie-board.

The course proved that entertaining, challenging trails can be found very close to the city. The series aims to hold short Saturday morning trail races on a monthly basis close to public transport stops.


Category results given below under the photos, but the link to the full table you can find here.


There were a few reports of short cutting from the first three participants. This would not affect the result and for this time we let the result stand. In future course design will keep checkpoints in places where a shortcut would be possible.


  • “Thank you very much organiser team for that excellent marking (Manish Tamang) #preeti didi was like ‘cherry on a cake'”
  • “I would like to thank all of you organizer, it was fun and management was excellent….”
  • “Thank you Trail Running Nepal and the team for organizing this amazing run …” – Team Nepal Dynamic Running Club
  • “Thank you too much trail running Nepal, great race! Congrats to the winners and participants!” – Jimi Oostrum


Thanks to the volunteers at the checkpoint and registration. Come join as a volunteer next time!
