Running the Great Himalaya Trail in 40 days

The Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) is one of the longest and highest trails in the world. Imagine 1700 km of trail, 10 times the UTMB, 17 passes over 5000 meters and an overall elevation gain close to 90,000 meters. It is a huge challenge, a great adventure and real privilege to run in these amazing landscapes.

Anna and Philippe support Montagne et Partage, a non-profit organization that has been founded by Mountain Guides who wanted to help the Nepali people in return to their generosity and friendship. They are raising money to build a home for orphans in Sauraha (Chitwan District). You can help them and donate directly to Montagne et Partage on this secured page.

At the end of September Anna and Philippe will head to Nepal to run (GHT). You will find more details in the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) page and you can Like their facebook page to follow their adventure.
