Welcome

The North Face Kathmandu Ultra is in its third year. We have a small issue with the National Park forbidding events at the moment. Buses, jeeps, cars, motorbikes, helicopters are all fine, but a running event, not. Read about it here.

We’ve got some good prizes, cash prizes from our sponsor, The North Face, and the ultra distance race winners will be invited to race in China courtesy of China Mountain Trails. Check the menu to the left for registration and course info.
