The Annapurna 100 is destined to be one of the world’s great trail running races.
It’s got hills, trails, forests, culture and probably the only ultra race where you get a tikka on your forehead at 50 km and a garland of flowers around your neck. It’s Nepal’s original ultra-marathon and a fabulous way to spend the first day of 2012.
2012 will be the best race ever,
with a 85% trail course on delightful paths with stupendous views. There are three ultra-distances to choose from, including a none-too-easy 100 km over some very hilly terrain. The course takes the road out of Pokhara (820 m).
Registration for the race is on Saturday 31st 2011 and payment will be taken then. The race starts at 5.30am on Sunday 1st close to the lakeside in Pokhara.
The entry is 150 Euro for all races which includes food and lodging at the finish and transport to Pokhara. You’re free to manage the rest of your
travel and accommodation according to your own preferences.
Pokhara lies at 827 m altitude. The highest point in the race is 3210 m which for many visitors is noticeable but completely manageable and poses no problems.
Part of this race is on the Great Himalaya Trail lower route. Learn more at thegreathimalayatrail.org
This race is organized by the Nepal Mountain Running Service who is working to give Nepal’s talented runners a chance to develop and reach their potential.
