The coming November 13th will kick off the 4th edition of the EVEREST TRAIL RACE. The teams of marking, camps and race organization are already in Nepal to complete preparations, waiting for runners’ arrival, who will come to Nepal from different parts of the world next November 9th.
The race, entirely organized by a Spanish company and now in its 4th edition, will feature the participation of mountain runners from various countries among which we can find, USA, Nepal, Portugal, Mexico, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. The race will take place as in the previous three editions, in the Khumbu Valley, with the powerful presence of the great giants. Everest, Lothse, Ama Dablam and many iconic peaks of the Himalayas, that from 13th to 18th November will be witnesses to the pass of the runners, adventure lovers, who accept the challenge of this unique mountain race. They expect more than 160 km and nearly 30,000 meters accumulated between positive and negative gain, in this years race.
The organization has planned to make some changes in present edition, which will give more adventure -if possible- to the test, introducing some variations on the original route that bring participants to most inhospitable and less travelled areas, plus a few surprises that will be revealed with the runners already in situ.
To participate in the race participants must pass, as in previous editions, technical and medical controls established by the organization. These controls made by doctors and race management teams are particularly demanding, in order to guarantee maximum safety.
The test, of technical self-sufficiency, has a high component of adventure, although the organization provides participants with food and drink, aid stations, medical equipment, camps, etc.
Again cutting times will be broad in order to elite athletes and also mountain walkers with good fitness can participate. Not to be forgotten that the experience requires good preparation to meet the tough stages that make up this test, qualified by many participants from previous editions, as the toughest in the world, so to the stage races are concerned.
