Update on Reseduling Everest Marathon 2020

March 20, 2020

You guys have been sending us emails with concern that the Corona (Covid-19) may not improve at all in either side of our countries. In this respect, we would like to inform you that we are working on rescheduling our marathon for September 24, 2020, the auspicious day, celebrating the first British ascent of Mount Everest under the leadership of Sir Chris Bonington, which successfully climbed South West Face of Mount Everest for the first time on 24th September 1975, by Doug Scott & Dougal Haston, in the same manner, we were celebrating Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s first climb of Mount Everest via South East Ridge on May 29 back in 1953.

 

We will send you further information from time to time.

Update : 01 May, 2021

Dear Everest Marathon Runners,

 

This comes aftermath of Nepal Government’s Announcement of Stricter Rules for Tourist Arrivals, Tourist Movements within the country and Quarantine Requirement against New Version Covid-19 Pandemic. Even Everest Base Camp has recorded certain “Covid Positive Cases” which has alarmed the World & Nepal Government by International Media Report ALERTS.

 

Due to the New Rule imposed by Nepal Government with lockdown in Kathmandu Valley & several other districts across the Nation, along with the mandatory quarantine restrictions for all International Traveler tourists inside Nepal, it will not be easy and comfortable for all to travel in to Nepal and trek to Everest Base camp and run our Everest marathon this year. Hence, considering all these facts, we have decided to postpone the Everest Marathon for next year 2022 only, on the same day of 29th of May, 2022. Because our first and foremost priority is the health and safety of our marathon runners.

 

The Organisers of the Marathon Event, regret the Inconvenience caused to all our Runners across the World, even though the decision has been taken for the Safety of our Runner Participants.

 

We look forward to welcome you all in Next Year Everest Marathon 2022.

 

Best regards,
