Snowman Run Bhutan

In preparation for the first SNOWMAN RUN (October 2020), a route calibration run is being held from 13 October 2019.  Slated to be the most challenging race in the world, this ultramarathon will take runners across the breathtaking, pristine landscapes of Lunana– lakes, glaciers, majestic mountains, shrubs, isolated villages, and the highest places within the Himalayan mountain range. Somewhere between myth and mystery, the unforgiving terrain will be a true test of strength, resilience, and willpower for even the most daring and fittest athletes.

The Snowman Run leads off from Gasa, the northernmost district of Bhutan, and challenges runners to cover over 300 kilometres in less than 5 days, taking them to altitudes of 5,320m, before ending in the magical valley of Bumthang.
