Nepal prides itself on its magnificent Himalayan mountains, and yet it is one of the countries most plagued by poverty and political stability. The 10-year civil war ended in 2006, but left many families parent-less.

We will challenge ourselves with a 3-day 100km Ultra Marathon in the Himalayans, volunteer, and raise money for Nepal Orphans Home near Kathmandu, Nepal.

Support us! We will bring you back a piece of Nepal.

Why are we doing this?

Simply because we believe we should do it when we are still physically / mentally / financially capable of doing it before we are bound by job / family / friend obligations. Life is short; live it to the fullest!

What will we do?

We will join the Nepal Action Asia 3-day Ultra Marathon 2012, and spend 3 days volunteering in Nepal Orphans Home, an orphanage near Kathmandu, Nepal. Now we want to raise $5,000 (or more!) to buy 10 thick rugs for the children so they can stay warm in the chilly, long winters (it goes down to 2C without heating!).

Nepal Action Asia 3-day Ultra Marathon 2012

This annual event in November will be joined by 80 enthusiastic runners from all over the world. While the distance itself means completing an ordinary marathon 2.5 times in 3 days, the mountainous landscape means we have to shuttle between altitudes of 500-1200m repeatedly. (not to mention Lantau 2-peaks, Moontrekker in Hong Kong a few weeks before the Ultra Marathon, and Trailwalker 2 weeks after. Good luck to us!
