Everest Marathon, Nepal

The Everest Marathon is the highest marathon in the world, held at 584 meters above sea level. If you are thinking about doing this marathon, you will also have to factor in several weeks of acclimatization beforehand. The obstacles you will come across include steep climbs, snow, ice and exposure and of course the thin air.
