The Ladakh Marathon is the highest and amongst the toughest marathons. Out of the six races, the event offers two ultra races – the 72 km Khardung La Challenge (5370 m) which is presently the World’s Highest Ultra Marathon and the 122 km Silk Route Ultra which will be the epitome of high altitude running testing the limits of human endurance.

Unlike other marathons, the Ladakh Marathon requires participants to arrive in Leh atleast a week in advance to acclimatise for race day. You are running at 3500 m 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 participants the unique opportunity to run with local people of Ladakh through the most beautiful landscape offering stunning vistas of mountains, rivers and valleys. It 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.
