Last year 1,500 runners participated and this year’s event which takes place on 8 September 2013 is shaping up to be bigger and better.
The Ladakh Marathon is the world’s highest and toughest marathon an opportunity for runners seeking new challenges to test their endurance and physical limits at 3524 metres (11,562 feet). Participants in the ultra-marathon, the Khardung La Challenge cross the world’s highest motorable road at 5362 metres (17,588 ft) before descending to Leh.
The Ladakh Marathon takes place during the Ladakh Festival, a weeklong celebration of sport, culture and tradition in a predominantly Buddhist high mountain desert region that was a central stop on the historic Silk Route between Central Asia and India.
The goal of the eco-friendly “green” marathon is to encourage the young people of Ladakh to live a healthy lifestyle by taking up running and become more aware of the need to protect a stunningly beautiful but environmentally fragile region.
The event is organized by Leh-based Rimo Expeditions, India’s leading adventure travel company in cooperation with the support of the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council and Jammu & Kashmir Tourism.
