To begin, here’s a flyer for you to share. There is a Facebook event page here.
Where is Chautara?
It’s about 3 hour’s drive from Kathmandu to the East in Sindhupalchowk district, one of the most affected by the earthquake.
A bit of background
Ram Puri has visited France several times to visit his guests – he’s a French speaking trekking guide. He has instigated many development projects in his village, and made a woman’s race last year which was much enjoyed. Again this year he wanted to make a big trail race for all to enjoy. This is Ram Puri pictured to the right.
50 km & 21 km routes will be available.
Here’s some of the scenery you can expect in the area.
The registration fee will be 1,000/1,500 for the 51km and 800/1,200 for the 21km (Nepali/Foreigner), with 20% discount for students. The fee includes transport from Kathmandu, supplies during the race and a race T-shirt.
