Mustang Trail Race

April 4, 2020 - April 6, 2020


The Mustang Trail Race mixes challenging running on centuries-old trading trails, with plenty of downtime for rest and cultural exploration of caves, villages, monasteries & Hindu temples from Lower to Upper Mustang.

The Mustang Trail Race is an 8-stage, high-altitude trail race through the culturally Tibetan, trans-Himalayan region of Nepal.

I just wanted to write and say a huge and heartfelt thank you for organising this amazing race … it was absolutely worth it and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

  • FRIENDLY – Up to 30 like-minded starters forming a friendly group. We invite young Nepali running talents to develop their running and interpersonal skills.
  • UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT – We run northwards towards Tibet, behind the stunning 8000 m Annapurna Massif, running at altitudes between 2900 m and 4,300 m!
