Nepal Spirit

I am almost packed. Yikes there is a lot of stuff to cram into a small space! I am buzzing with excitement to go back to a place that gives me so much love and kindness among its extremes. So this is the line up:

The Everest Sky Race

Running 360 km and 12 stages with +18000m and -17000m. There are six passes that are over 5000m altitude and the highest is Tashi Lapsa at 5755 m.

Here is the website: http://www.leschevaliersduvent.fr/everest-sky-race/esr-2013 and results will hopefully be posted here during the race as long as the porter with information can run far enough to find internet! (And for those who are interested, I have added my gear list below. I am guessing it is about 8kg).

Manaslu Trail Race

Covering 212km over 7 days and crossing a 5100m pass, we sleep at a monastery, peer over the border into wild Tibet, run above a glacier on the trail to Manaslu Base Camp and enjoy many awesome trails in between. 

This is the website: http://manaslutrailrace.org/ and I hope for some updates of how we are going during the week, but it again it depends on who, where and when the internet and the porter find each other!
