The Starters of the first Everest Ultra 2010

This is The Highest Ultra in the World. Although designed to minimise risk by making the course initially a downhill start, it does include some arduos uphill sections at altitude. This is a challenging race that has a degree of risk attached to it.

All participants take part purely at their own risk and no responsibility will taken for the conditions of the course or the risks associated with altitude.

The course is on trekking paths, water stations and medical posts will be provided. All participants must be part of the tour group and come under the umbrella of the Everest Ultra Organisation. This next race will take place on March 30th 2013.

This is a purely non profit organisation raising money to promote Nepali long distance runners.

    If you are organising the Everest 65 Ultra for the same time in 2015, I would be very interested. An early indication of dates would be appreciated as I’ll have to book the time off of work asap. Many Thanks

      Dear Organisers!
      I am trekking around Everest Base amp and Gorak Shep in March with my friend.
      It would be great to participate in the race. Unfortunately I cannot join you on the acclimatisation trek because my friend wants to do a similar route but not the same, alone with me. But I am familiar with hihg altitude and also long distance races..
      Is it possible to join you maybe 3 days before the start and race with you then?

      Have some nice days around Christmas with friends and family!

    How do I subscribe ?

  23. Jan says:

    Thermals are good for the nights otherwise multi layers and a jacket…. I have always worn Nike running shoes all the way…. even in the snow!

    Get your visas at the airport.

  24. stephen woods says:

    Hi Stephen here from Ireland just some questions about the weather for the race what sort of gear is needed ?? visa’s ??


    • Jan says:

      Although we have experienced some snow at this time of year it is rarely a factor and usually above Pheriche. The temperature is usually above -5 at night so overall you are left only with the terrain and the altitude to worry about.
