In November of 2012, David Loutzenheiser joined the inaugural Manaslu Mountain Trail Race - a multi stage race passing through some of Nepal’s most beautiful Himalayan landscapes in a part-circumnavigation of Manaslu, at 26,759 ft, the world’s eighth highest mountain. The race takes place over 7 days, running ~131 miles at high Nepali altitudes plus a "rest" day to hike across into Tibet. Join David in seeing and hearing more about the race, Nepali culture, food, and the physical challenge of what it was like to run up to 17,000 ft (and back down)!
