Welcome to the world of Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon!
 
Good Morning World, Good Morning Marathon Runners. Today is our : 
 
May 29 World's Highest Marathon Tenzing Hillary Mount Everest Marathon Day!
 
The photo below:  Greek Ambassador to Nepal at Namche Bazar Hill, Crowning the Winner of Tenzing Hillary Mount Everest Marathon with Bodhi Tree Branch Tiara.
 
The Marathon Sports carries birth history from Greece. 
 
Greece has tradition of honouring the winner of their most important sports events with the Holy Olive Tree  Branch Tiara.
 
But in Nepal, Bikram re-invented the tradition by crowning the Winner with a Bodhi Tree Branch Tiara  (पिपलको हाँगाको मुकुट ), connecting it with the significance of the Holiest plant species of the region, under which, Buddha had sat for a rigorous sacrament meditation in search of truth of life and attended an Enlightenment.
 
Bodhi Tree Branch Tiara symbolises Determination, Buddha, his Enlightenment Tree and Buddha’s own country Nepal.
 
However, due to ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have merged this Year’s Marathon Event with 2021 May 29 Event.
 
Warm Good Wishes from:
