9th Annapurna 100, Saturday 22nd October 2016
The Annapurna 100K/50K has joined the Asian Trail Master, a new series of trail races across Asia.
It’s got big mountain views, forests trails, village culture and it’s probably the only ultra race where you get a tikka on your forehead at 20 km and a khata around your neck. It’s Nepal’s original ultra race with 50 and 100 km courses.
The next race is on 22nd October 2016 so add it to your calendar. (If you cannot make this dates, see here for more events in Nepal).
