‘when mds meets utmb’

Sign-up for the adventure of a lifetime

Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime?


Our stunning Capital to Country Ultra will see you run through the mesmerising Nepalese foothills with the mountains as your backdrop.


This self-sufficient, 123-mile race has been described as a cross between two of the top ultra races on the planet: The Marathon des Sables and the Ultra-Trial du Mont-Blanc.


It offers entrants the chance to immerse themselves in the culture of Nepal, as well as presenting them with a genuine physical challenge in a unique environment.


For those of you who decided to take on this most unique of challenges, your adventure will start with a visit to the World Heritage Site of the Monkey Temple or Swayambhunath in the west of Kathmandu City. 


Capital to Country Multi-Day Ultra Marathon 2023 Day Four 

Here you will warm-up with a steep step climb, before returning to the hotel for lunch and a final kit-check after some sightseeing and shopping time.


The historic town of Sanku in the north eastern corner of the Kathmandu valley will be your starting point for this epic journey through Nepal. 


Following jeep tracks cut in the hillsides, you will pass through incredible tree covered hills and round breathtaking drops.


The journey will take you through a diverse mixture of towns and villages, and into areas tourists don’t normally see. 


Expect a warm welcome and some jaw-dropping temples and holy sites, coupled with panoramas of lush vegetation and snow-capped peaks.


This is a race which is more than worth the steep ascents it traverses through, and comes with the extra advantage of being truly sustainable and providing a boost to what is a precious local economy.


Runners will stay in pre-prepared campsites for the first three nights, and then enjoy the relative luxury of a village bunk house or tents on nights four and five.

On the morning of the fifth day, you will be woken by the sound of a chanting monk who will be blessing the mountain and our runners.


After that, you will be itching to complete the challenge on the final day before enjoying a well-earned traditional meal cooked by the ladies of the village.


We’ll finish with a short downhill walk – you’ll welcome it by then! – to a bus back to Kathmandu, where you will have some time to explore the city and enjoy our farewell meal.


Throughout your adventure, you will be taken care of by our fantastic local race manager and his team, who know the area like the back of their hands.


We are taking only a small team with us from England, along with minimal equipment and trackers that we can’t source in Nepal.


Everything else is bought locally and we are paying our local team well in order to help give something back to Nepal in a positive way.

  • Please be aware, that you will be carrying all your own food and kit so choose what you take wisely!

That said, our ever-hospitable Nepalese hosts will want to look after you so may provide tea, coffee etc at the campsites – that is not cheating! This is meant to be a tough race, but also on that is fun at heart and not an excuse for suffering.
