Sherpa Everest Marathon Race
A stunning 42k trail race beneath the highest point on our planet
A serious undertaking, but realistic for those who move well on trails, and who can get to the start line feeling healthy. In many ways, that is the challenge.
Start at c5200m altitude, finish at c3400m.
42k, with roughly 800m D+/3000m D-.
Checkpoints and aid stations every 5-8k
Surfaces are mostly dry, rocky trail.
Technical sections over boulderfields near the start, but the trails are generally runnable.
The route is generally (but not totally) a descent so the air will get thicker and warmer throughout the race
