The Tenzing-Hillary Everest Marathon is one of the most adventurous trail run in the world and our thank you and good luck goes to John Pomfret, who decided to run it to raise funds for Walking With The Wounded.
The journey begins in Kathmandu with a sweeping scenic flight to Lukla before starting the trek through Sherpa villages with beautiful views of the world’s highest snowcapped peaks. The highest spot of this trip is Kalapatthar at 5545m/18200ft, from the summit of which a breathtaking panoramic view of Himalayan peaks, ranges and glaciers including Mt Everest a stone’s throw away.
This is once in a life time chance to trek to Everest Base Camp taking in two, possibly three, trekking peaks before joining one of the toughest Marathon in the world on the 29th of May 2013.
The cost of the trip joining in Kathmandu will be £2,200 which is inclusive of all accommodation, food, guiding, climbing permits, national park fees and the Everest marathon registration fee.
Half of the funds raised will go directly to Walking With The Wounded, and if you wish to support John please donate here: http://www.justgiving.com/John-Pomfret
