Considerada a maratona na maior altitude do mundo, e por alguns, a com mais aventura. A viagem começa com um vôo de Kathmandu a Lukla, no Nepal. A corrida se inicia no acampamento base (5364m) e termina no Namche Bazaar (3446m). Você precisa fazer um trekking para chegar no acampamento, no qual passará pelo ponto mais alto do percurso todo: Kalapatthar, a 5545m. A maratona é um tributo ao Tenzing Norgay Sherpa e ao Sir Edmund Hillary, que foram os primeiros homens a escalar o monte com sucesso em 1953. A vista é maravilhosa: você vê de geleiras a picos do Himalaia.
