The Himalayan series 2017 by the organizers Globeracers is an event that boasts of the four best elements of this race: the unmatched Himalayan landscape, the high altitude, rough terrain and extreme temperatures. It’s a true celebration of the mountain spirit. This is not a a race for the weak hearted as the route criss-crosses through mountain ranges of The Himalayas, taking you through Kinnaur and Spiti Valleys before ending on one of the toughest passes on this planet -The Rohtang La. This route cuts through mountains and splendid landscapes, and is surrounded by snow capped majestic peaks, goes over two of the highest passes, Kunzum and Rohtang, extends through wide valleys, camps by high altitude lake, The Chandra Taal, and takes you to the highest village in Asia, Komic.
Participants are required to complete two 100 km(or more) races in the past 12 months. If you have completed any other high altitude events or ultra races kindly specify this in your application as this could help you get selected.
