About Snowman Run Bhutan
This race of a lifetime follows the trail of the famous Snowman Trek, which has been completed by fewer people than Everest. The audacious event appropriately turns up the heat, focused as it is on Climate Change.
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.
