Everyone has a different connection with the mountains. Some find it by slowing down and picking up a book while others prefer to get their soles dirty and scale its heights. The hub for Adventure and Winter Sports, Manali is now set to host a marathon for all the adrenaline seekers. Winding roads, snow capped peaks, dazzling river, and running through high altitude forest, an adventure to look out for.
One-of-its-kind race in Manali beckons you! Why waste time stuck in traffic when you can enjoy the beauty of the valley on your feet and earn a medal at the finish line.
We introduce Manali Mountain Marathon in association with ABVIMAS (Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports).
