About Event

Himalayan Rush an annual cross triathlon is held in Nepal and combines the thrill of trail running, cycling (mountain-bike only) and fresh water swimming. Race categories include Sprint and Olympic Distance Triathlon, Duathlon, Team Relay and 5k/10k run. Pokhara (827m from sea level) is blessed with proximity to the mountains and a temperate climate which makes it the perfect place for a race that’s easy to get to (20-minute flight from Kathmandu) and needs no high altitude training.

The Himalayan Rush integrates the spirit of competing against the toughest athletes and the tranquil natural settings of the lake city Pokhara into a single dimension. This is a haven for those seeking adventure in the off-roads. Intense uphill trails that give a tough time to athletes, but also becomes equally blessed with the natural scenery that surrounds the routes highs, with a backdrop of the mountain ranges keeping company throughout most of the trail.

For adventurers and fitness enthusiasts, first-timers and experienced triathletes alike, Himalayan Rush is the experience of a lifetime.
