The Great Buddhist Master Trail Marathon
November 5, 2020 @ 5:00 am - November 7, 2020 @ 8:00 pm GMT
An event every year that begins at 5:00 am on day 5 of November, repeating until November 7, 2020
The Great Buddhist Master trail Marathon is more than a run, this is about a whole Nepalese experience.
Firstly enjoy the intoxicating and exhilarating city of Kathmandu, See the sunrise over the city from Swayambhuath (The Monkey Temple) and experience a culture so different to ours at Pashupatinath where you will witness cremations alongside the Holy river Bagmati.
It is all off road (no tarmac in sight for miles) You will twist and turn onto little tracks and pass through tiny villages at the foot of the Himalayas to the amusement of the locals!
In November the village is at it’s best with mustard fields in full colour, orange trees in bloom and clear visibility to the snow capped mountains above. It is truly spectacular.
The Manegau village sits at the foot of the Himalayas and the landscape is simply stunning. It is like stepping into a different world. You will be welcomed by the locals as you run or walk through their villages, and eat freshly prepared traditional homemade Nepalese cuisine.
After a challenging run/walk there will be a prize giving ceremony followed by a traditional Nepalese party under the stars. This trip is intimate with only 20 participants each time as it is not a commercial run. It is non-profit making and has enabled houses to be built following the earthquakes 3 years ago.
If the 2019 has sold out, you can contact organizers to apply for the 2020 marathon. Spots fill up fast. So hurry!
