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.
