Run Everest: The Ultimate Running Adventure

There’s a new stage race on the calendar and it just might be the most epic challenge you’ll take part in!

As trail running takes off across the planet and runners seek new and exciting events, the arrival of Run Everest brings something special to the calendar. This truly unique stage race allows you to experience one of the world’s great adventures, that being the Everest Base Camp trek, as you test yourself in the playground of the Himalayas. The inaugural event will take place on November 29th 2024, spanning 14 days with 10 stages and 1 rest day. Across the fortnight participants will cover approximately 185km with some 10,500m of vertical gain, reaching a maximum altitude of 5,365m. Throughout this time they will be immersed in mountain wilderness and the beautiful Nepalese culture.

Run Everest is a fully supported stage race that combines adventure and cultural immersion, all the while giving back to community. It will see the intrepid participants taking on the challenge of the classic EBC journey, from Jiri to Everest Base Camp along the original trekking route, before heading back down to the mountain hub of Lukla. They’ll be following in the footsteps of the pioneering Everest mountaineers, traversing some of the most spectacular and challenging terrain on the planet.

This is a totally immersive journey, from the first day in Kathmandu where you meet the team, on the road trip to Jiri, across 11 days in the wilderness and then celebrating at the presentation dinner, Run Everest is a wholistic experience where you will challenge your mind and body. What’s more, you will leave the adventure having grown as a human, knowing that you are capable of achieving remarkable things and enlightened by the beautiful culture of the Nepalese people.

Parallel to a desire to create a lifechanging experience for participants, the Run Everest team also want to have a positive impact on the lives of local Nepalese people. As such, for every competitor in the event, one child will have the cost of their schooling covered for the year. This is being facilitated by the charity Friends of Himalayan Children. Also, profits from Run Everest will go towards the cost of training female mountain guides that will eventually be employed by event partner, Take On Nepal.
