About Event

The course is gentle and altitude acclimatization when you come in is key – train well with hill training or a load on your back.The 10K and 5K are tough runs.

Acclimatise well on your way to, and at Sangla, get used to the altitude and stop off at Narkanda/ Thanedar on the way in and do a jog or trek early morning. When you reach Sangla – do a few treks – it is breathtakingly beautiful. Phenomenal to come with your family.

The 5km and 10km runs start and finish at Banjara Camps and have a great view of the Sangla Valley as they cross the Baspa River and go through varied forest terrain on an adventure of a lifetime which will include running over an ice field and doing an exciting stream crossing.

The Half and full Marathoners start at Banjara Camps in Batseri Village and do a run to Raksham – around 9 km away and carry on a bit further to Chitkul and beyond where the half marathon finishers. Participants will return in vehicles to Banjara Camp.

The full marathoners will do a U-turn beyond Chitkul and run back the way they came, to Banjara Camps
