‘ I DID IT!’

Trail Running (UK) - - Off- Road Racing - Laura Jones

The Ever­est Marathon is a jour­ney, not just a marathon, and I loved every minute. To reach the start line you need to trek for 12-14 days to Ever­est Base Camp, pass­ing through small moun­tain vil­lages sur­rounded by some of the largest peaks in the world. When the start gun fires even walk­ing can leave you breath­less, so you just move as fast as you can, run­ning when it feels good and walk­ing when it doesn’t. The route is tech­ni­cally down­hill but don’t let this fool you – there’s quite a lot of height gain too!
