8th edition of Ladakh Marathon 2019

Ladakhi swag!

When the cinema covers the breath-taking views of Ladakh, visiting that place with a DSLR becomes your wish. Isn’t it? But not only the mountains and stunning landscape can make you feel adventurous, but if you chose to participate in the Ladakh Marathon and take all that nature’s beauty in. That would be forever and inspiring experience for you and for others!

For totally taking in and preparing for the final run, you will need to get adapted to the environment of Ladakh. You have to reach Leh at least one week prior. As you will be 3500m above sea level, your body needs to get acquainted with the Ladhaki altitude. Match your attitude with its altitude!

Prize details:

As an initiative to reduce the usage of plastic, from this year, there will be refill facilities at the aid stations instead of bottled/packaged water bottles. The organizer will ensure that refilling is as efficient as possible. Hence, all runners shall bring in their own bottles/hydration pack.

There is a professional photographer available for all the Marathons to get that shot of yours.

Important:

As you are onto something this exciting you need the mobile network to update your vlogs or stories over social media platforms. Right?

Besides the local prepaid SIM cards, ONLY POSTPAID SIM cards of service providers BSNL, AIRTEL & RELIANCE JIO work in Leh. Prepaid SIM cards from the rest of India DO NOT work. International SIM cards also do not work in Ladakh. Even with postpaid SIM cards, Airtel works within Leh and not outside of Leh. BSNL works best and in the outskirts of Leh but not at all places too.  Local SIM cards take up to 3 to 5 days to get activated.

So, it’s better if you get the local SIM card. And create air online and connect with your relatives.

After your Marathon is over, you must manage your own transport back to your hotel.
