Manali – Leh highway is considered and is one of the toughest highways around the world because of the high altitude and harsh weather. The highway is closed & covered in Snow for almost six months, opens in the month June and closes in Oct. The average altitude is higher than 4000m & Oxygen levels dip to 40-60% on passes. Running in such conditions is not an easier task and would need serious training.

Covering the entire 480km on foot at such high altitude is definitely not for the weak willed!

Through out the race runners run through extreme weather conditions, temperatures dipping to -10 degrees, oxygen levels going down to 50%, in terrains that are as beautiful as they are difficult – and all this in a mere 120 hours. For every crazy idea, there is, there are equally crazy (and amazing) people out there who will jump on board. Over past 3 editions, we had 8 superhuman rockstar’s who have compete

Ferenc Szonyi, is the only runner who had finished the race not only once but twice. He kept an incredibly steady but fast pace through the 5 days, completing the challenge in an awe-inspiring 108hr 13min in 2018 and 113 hours 13min 29sec in 2017. He showed us how to face challenges with a smile and to stay focused no matter what!
