Event Details

This Jumla Rara Ultra Marathon is a prime important and famous Ultra-Marathon in Nepal. The race will be held in 24 April 2023.The race starts from Jumla bazaar (2305m), and finishes at the Rara lake (2990m). The course is measured 49 km, although it is basically uphill and downhill, the trail undulates and there are three steep uphill and downhill Danphe (3500m), Kavra cave, Bhulbhule (2950m) and Chuchemara (4017m). we believe this Jumla Rara Ultra Marathon will definitely help to boom adventure sports tourism in Karnali as well as it provides athletes by offering and creating national and international platforms to compete
