Big pass day! Views to Annapurna, Himlung with plenty of big glaciers in the descent valley. Hard work but fabulous!

The views are incredible from this route and this is the last day up high. Previously we’ve walked this stage and continue with the decision not to race it. If you’re strong you can feel free to run it at your own pace, or in a group of similarly able runners. Equally, it is a great day to go steady and enjoy the scenery.

It’s a long stage with a 5160m pass in it. We start very early to allow staff, porters and any competitor who is not at peak fitness to cross with daylight to spare. Some people will complete the route by 11am, many by 2pm and others moving slowly by 5pm.

Long day, but there’s always time for fun if you don’t have a headache.
