Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon in February is the first one in India

Posted by Team on: Nov 26, 2022

The Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon, affectionately known as The Last Run, will take place in Ladakh on February 20, 2023. It will be the first of its type in India. The term may be ominous, but so does the problem of climate change and global warming. The Adventure Athletics Foundation of Ladakh organised the marathon in an effort to use sports to raise awareness of the problem of climate change.

The location is ideal for the 21 km long marathon, which is the first of its sort in India. For this occasion, registration is already open.

To run this marathon, you don't just get up and go. The marathon trail will be challenging due to the ice and cold, thus runners will be chosen based on their prior marathon and other high-altitude adventure sport experience (10,000 ft and above). Running participants must go through the required acclimatisation phase.

The marathon, which will occur at a height of 13,862 feet, will be the first of its kind to ever take place in the globe. Right there is a chance for a Guinness World Record.

The Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon's whole 21 km route will cross Pangong Tso. That will not only be a distinctive run, but also one of the most beautiful runs ever.

It is crucial to understand that due to the area's ecological sensitivity, only a select few runners will be chosen for this.

The marathon package (9D/8N), which includes acclimatisation training, lodging, meals, and airport transportation to and from Leh, is the only option open to interested runners.
