Running 5 back to back half marathon at an average altitude of over 4000m will be a daunting task and one will need serious training. Here’s a 15 week plan to train yourself for this ultimate Himalayan Challenge.
Running 21.1km is an accomplishment in itself and running in the mountains makes it even more challenging. We are here with an 8 week plan to train you for the Bir Billing Half Marathon on 16th April 2017.
I’m a 50-year old (only just) ultra runner from England. I live in a small town called Broughton, with my wife of 15 years and two lovely children. I heard about the Great Himalayan Running Festival from a Facebook advert in March, when the word ‘hell’ in the title immediately caught my attention. I’ve been training for the event since, with at least 6 days of running, strength training, treadmill speed work and yoga at least 6 days a week, as part of a healthy lifestyle that I try to keep. My goal is to explore the 4 key elements of the earth at the GHRF 2017. So far I’ve completed Marathon Des Sables and the BTU Amazon Jungle Ultra
My name is David Cole, I’m 49 years of age, from Australia and working and living in Thailand with my wife and son. I started running just 10 years ago – the catalyst was living in Shanghai where I had little opportunity to exercise having a door to door subway commute between home and my office, so I joined an 8km fun run and it started from there. I found myself quickly running marathons, and then getting in on the trail running boom throughout Asia. I need to be always doing something active; being in the outdoors.
