Ladakh Marathon >>> 9th September 2012

Announcing the Inaugural Ladakh Marathon- Ladakh is back and running!


Two years after devastating flash floods tore through the region leaving a trail of death and destruction, Ladakh is back and running and getting set to host the Ladakh Marathon which includes the Khardung La Challenge, the world’s highest endurance run.

Race day is on 9 September 2012 with four events including a full marathon around the capital of Leh at an altitude of 3524 metres (11,562 feet.)

There is also the extreme Khardung La Challenge where runners cross one of the the world’s highest passes 5602 metres (18,380 feet.)

When hundreds of local Ladakhis accompanied by runners from across India and the world participate they will be saying in a loud and unified voice that yes, Ladakh is back and running.


Four challenging routes to choose from

10 KM RUN
It may be the shortest race but it doesn’t mean the 10 KM run will be easy. Still, this race is expected to have the widest participation among runners both young and older. We expect lots of schoolchildren to participate in this run and know it will involve the most enthusiasm.

21 KM HALF MARATHON
The half marathon takes you through the town of Leh and its outskirts and includes a loop that starts at the Petrol Pump and back. If you are not ready for the full marathon why not give this run a shot and then come back next year for the big race. Most people run the half marathon to prepare for the full marathon.

42 KM MARATHON
The Ladakh Full Marathon is the world’s highest marathon. It begins and ends in the town of Leh but the route takes you through the outskirts and along the Leh Valley where the road crosses the Indus River several times. If you are a serious long distance runner this is one course you will want under your belt and be talking about for a long time to come.

KHARDUNG LA CHALLENGE
This is a race for the elite runner who wants to push the limits of endurance. It starts in the scenic Nubra Valley and then goes uphill all the way to the Khardung La along the world’s highest motorable road past summer yak pastures and stunning views of the East Karakoram mountains of Ladakh. The good thing is that once you reach the pass, it’s all downhill from there to Leh.
