Run for Recovery 2017

All profits raised from this event will go back into the community to assist with the Earthquake Rebuilding effort.

You will be running through villages that have been devastated by the Earthquake. With help from Friends of Himalayan Children, we are working hard to rebuild the lives of the people in this district. Your participation in this event will be of enormous benefit to the villagers of Nepal.

Ultra-Trail Nepal takes place in the Sindhupalchowk district of Nepal where the devastation caused by the Earthquake on 25th April 2015 is very raw. The villagers are still living in challenging conditions and many are grieving the loss of family members. Ultra-Trail Nepal aims to provide much needed support to the people of this district and to provide them with opportunities to move forward.

Money raised will be used for:

  • Building drinking water facilities along the trails.
  • Maintaining roads and trails for villagers to be able to access facilities.
  • Supporting village Schools along the trails of which you will be running.
  • Supporting local runners to achieve their dreams of racing nationally and internationally
  • Rebuilding homes for villagers who are most vulnerable as a result of loss from the Earthquake.

If you cannot attend the race but would still like to support our projects through making a donation, please visit “Friends of Himalayan Children”.
