Course Description

HALF MARATHON

The Half Marathon (21.1 Km.) starts at Shanti Stupa which was built in 1985 to commemorate world peace and offers some of the most stunning views of Leh, the capital of Ladakh. The course veers west to Changspa on the Yurthung road and go downhill past the Army General Hospital Road along the Airport road. Runners then go past the Hall of fame from where the race heads towards Spituk gompa on National Highway to Srinagar. From here onwards, the course turns South passing through the Spituk village along the true right bank of River Indus to arrive at Choglamsar (approx 6kms). From here the course meets the main Leh-Manali highway and it is an uphill run for about 4kms, running past Tibetan Refugee settlement, Indo-Tibetan Border Police and HIMANK headquarters. For the final 2.5kms the trail flattens as we enter Leh town to finish at Ladakh Public School grounds.
