Additional Information

The Tenzing-Hillary Marathon takes place on 29th May each year to celebrate the anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest by the late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953. 2020 will be the 18th edition of this monumental event - the highest altitude marathon in the world. Take part in this challenging 42km/26mile race, starting from below the ice seracs at Everest Base Camp and finishing in Namche Bazaar with Exodus' Paul Goldstein who will be undertaking this endurance test in a giant tiger suit to raise money for the 'Worth More Alive' campaign in the fight to save the Bengal tiger from extinction. Paul, together with Exodus Travels, is raising money to work with and educate local communities about the plight of the tigers, and their value to tourism in India. We ask anyone booking onto this trip to support this cause. *Please note:* * The Flight Inclusive and Land Only price for this trip includes a US$999 marathon entrance fee * The Activity Level (Challenging / 5) is for the trek only. Please read the /'Is This Trip for You?'/ text under /Essential Information/ or in the Trip Notes for details about the marathon If there is enough interest from those who are keen to show support but not wanting to run the marathon, Exodus will consider operating a non-runners supporters trek - please enquire.
