Kathmandu is especially beautiful in the winter.

Deep in the gentle dusty chaos of the city, distracted by the multitude of sights, sounds and smells you might be forgiven for not looking up. But when you do you realise that the city is surrounded by a ring of hills rising up to just below 3000m, and beyond to the north the snow covered summits of Langtang and Ganesh Himal.

A network of trails along this ring of hills can be linked together to allow circumnavigation of the entire Kathmandu Valley. It makes for a 100 mile journey with a lot of ascent and descent. “It’s a great adventure,” says Lizzy. She should know – setting an FKT on this route in March 2016. It’s the perfect boost for your winter training or purely a nice experience in itself.

This running camp breaks the journey into manageable stages with time to enjoy the running, the views and the culture. Come and see for yourself!

All camps are led by Lizzy Hawker.
