“Come to the Himalayas to celebrate running for a week.”
The Hell Ultra -480km might appear formidable to some and downright crazy to most, but for those of us who wish to get a taste of running at high altitudes we introduce the great Himalayan stage run – The High 5s
Run 5 marathons/ half marathons for 5 consecutive days from Manali to Leh on the highest road in the world.
Relax after the grueling days run and indulge yourself in this festival of running. Interaction with fellow athletes, adventure and survival stories from locals, and much more. Getting a taste of local Ladhaki lifestyle at these very remote locations.
The idea behind The High 5s is to celebrate running not only as a sport, but also as a lifestyle; to provide a platform for runners from all around the World to meet, to run together, share their experiences, surviving in the toughest conditions, overcoming barriers.
