I'd love to, but I think I'm washing my hair ;-)

Do they make one an honorary Dalai Lama if you win?

No thanks. I enjoy running. I don't feel the compulsion to be in some
strange land to do so.

They have both water and shampoo at both locations.

Just curious, will this require any type of altitude training,
or would my sea-level conditioning be just fine?

Hello Jan,

how's your running going? You will remember I showed some interest in
your Annapurna event when we met at the school bash in Eastbourne...
Are your littluns still at the same school.

Best,

John (and Ruth)

Acclimatisation will be a natural part of getting to the start line. It is a
downhill course pretty much so altitude sickness is minimal.

Re: Running on the Roof of the World

Yes we are still at the same old school the only difference for me is that
Nepal has become safe again so I am going back to organising races in the
Himalayas. I am on the verge of restarting the Annapurna 100k but am kicking
off with Lhasa and Everest as a warm up!

Cool - I'm aiming for the Everest marathon in Nov 2007 though (assuming I
ever get fit enough for it)

Re: Running on the Roof of the World

This is a different event not as high as the Tenzing Hillary Everest
Marathon which takes place on the anniversary of the ascent of Everest on
May 29th.

www.everestmarathon.com

Cyling is a very good way of getting fit for this event.

I must get back into cycling to work. My main worry for the event would be
though that I'd break my neck on the descent if the footing's anywhere near
what I've just been trekking through the past couple of weeks (Ladakh region
of India).

Re: Running on the Roof of the World

The terrain is very similar to Ladah, icy in places with a couple of glacial
morains to negotiate. Having said that you would obviously slow down at thos
points. The only injury we have had so far is a twisted ankle (sustained on
a dance floor in Kathmandu after the event!)

Back home, sitting in a bar, ankle in a cast - "What happened?"
"Well, I was dancing in Kathmandu after my Everest marathon...",
with a far-away look in the eye...
