Why Run It?

What to Expect

Imagine starting an ultramarathon with the Khumbu Icefall looming behind you, knowing that at that very moment, someone who stood atop Everest is descending through it. You might be inspired to race a bit harder, thinking of how thin the air is at EBC (17,500 feet) and how much thinner it must be 11,500 feet higher. Even running downhill at that altitude is a challenge. So if you’re thinking of the Everest Extreme Ultra as an easy descent, think again.

"Don’t die without embracing the daring adventure your life was meant to be."

To get to Everest Base Camp, it takes about a week and a half of hiking. The first days pass through charming mountain villages, where you might catch a glimpse of the summit if you’re lucky. But in the later days, you’re fully immersed in the Himalayas, surrounded by giants too immense to comprehend.
