Wild Running in Nepal’s New Mustang Mountain Trail Race
An eight-day stage race to explore new cultures and your mental strengths and physical limits

To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to. —Kahlil Gibran

Sometimes we need an out-of-the-ordinary experience to offer perspective, to reinvigorate us and perhaps to give us the chance to rediscover our motivations.

This spring, from April 27—May 10, 2013, the inaugural edition of a multi-stage trail-running challenge will traverse the enigmatic trans-Himalayan landscape of Mustang in Northern Central Nepal. The tough journey will cover 277 kilometers over eight stages. Daily distances will range from 20 to 40 kilometers, at altitudes between 10,000 and 13,000 feet.
