ABOUT THE LADAKH MARATHON
The Ladakh Marathon is the highest and amongst the toughest marathons. Of the 04 races in this event, the Khardungla Challenge (5370m) is the World’s Highest Ultra Marathon. Covering a distance of 72km this race tests the limits of human endurance.
Unlike other marathons, the Ladakh Marathon requires you to arrive in Leh atleast a week in advance to acclimatize for race day. You are running at 3500m above sea level so it is imperative that you get acclimatised to the high altitude.
The various races take place in and around Leh, the historic capital of Ladakh and offer runners the unique opportunity to run with local Ladakhis through the most beautiful landscape offering stunning vistas of mountains, rivers and valleys and will leave you with lifelong memories and a chance to say you ran the Ladakh Marathon .
Ladakh Marathon became a full member of AIMS (Association of International Marathons and Distance Races) in 2015 and has been profiled in various International Sports magazines and listed as being amongst the most beautiful breathtaking and awe-inspiring marathons in the world.
THANK YOU RUNNERS
Jullay! Greetings from Ladakh!
On behalf of the Ladakh Marathon Team, I would like to thank each and every one of you for making the 5th Edition of Ladakh Marathon such a huge success. Without all your support, this event would not have been possible.
From a little over 4000 participants last year, we had close to 5000 participants this year.
We are pleased to share that 52 runners out of 72 completed the Khardung la Challenge, the World’s Highest Ultra marathon, within the cut off time. There were also more non local participants this year. We have also got a very positive feedback from the participants for preponing the date to 10th September. This enabled us to give full attention to the runners of this Ultra Race.
As we are still a very young marathon, we would appreciate any feedback to make the 6th Edition of Ladakh Marathon an even better and bigger event.
Official Race Timings and Certificate for half and full marathon – These are now available, please check here
Khardung la Challenge runners – Official timings are available, please check here. Certificates for the Khardung la Challenge will be emailed soon to the participants.
Race day photos – There has been a delay in uploading the race day photographs and we apologise for the delay which is due to the slow & poor internet connectivity in Leh. These will soon be available and we will share details with you.
Thanking you once again for making the 5th Edition of Ladakh Marathon a Grand Success.
Jullay and we hope to see you next year.
