8-20 April 2023. The Mustang Trail Race is a supported 8-stage, 170 km long, high-altitude trail race through the culturally Tibetan, trans-Himalayan region of Nepal. It mixes challenging running on centuries-old trading trails, with plenty of downtime for rest and cultural exploration of caves, villages, monasteries & Hindu temples from Lower to Upper Mustang.
A SUPPORTED RACE – you run with a light pack, everything else is carried for you. You sleep in ‘tea-houses’ on comfortable mattresses. We feed you big cooked meals and you just bring a few favorite energy snacks.
8 STAGES, 12 DAYS – It’s 12 days in total: 8 x racing days, 1 x hiking day, 2 x travelling days, 1 x day briefing in Kathmandu.
FRIENDLY – Up to 30 like-minded starters forming a friendly group. We invite young Nepali running talents to develop their running and interpersonal skills.
UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT – We run northwards towards Tibet, behind the stunning 8000 m Annapurna Massif, running at altitudes between 2900 m and 4,300 m!
