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 acclimatise 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.
