With New Mount Everest Height 8848.86m, from the Government of Nepal, our 2023 Marathon will run as “New Higher Mount Everest Marathon” to celebrate the new increase of Mount Everest Height after the 2015 Earthquake in Nepal.
Our Everest Marathon is an international high altitude adventure sports event held on May 29 every year from Mt. Everest Base Camp crisscrossing the high Sherpa trails of Khumbu valley. This event celebrates the historical successful ascent of Mt. Everest by Late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary on 29th May 1953.
The 2023 edition is the 20th edition of this magnificent event. Runners from everywhere can take part in their desired categories 60 km Extreme Ultra, 42 km Full Marathon, and 21 Km Half Marathon.
Runners from all walks of life take part in this event – from highly professionals to new runners. Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon is not just a running event – it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
