EVER­EST MARATHON

Runner's World (UK) - - Best Races 2017 -

Un­sur­pris­ingly, this is of­fi­cially the high­est marathon in the world. There are per­fectly good rea­sons why the race date is sim­ply ‘Novem­ber’: first of all, you need to com­mit to a trip last­ing the best part of a month in or­der to ac­cli­ma­tise to the con­di­tions; sec­ond, the weather dic­tates on which precise day you’ll run the race – na­ture is in charge here. Once you get go­ing, it’s a mostly down­hill route with two steep in­clines, and while there is some ice and snow to tackle, most of it is on rough sin­gle-track.
