Word about the Roof of the World Marathon 2015(August 25,2014)

The Roof of the World Marathon is one of the world's few high-altitude marathons open to those who want to run at an
average altitude well above the normal height for parachute jumping !!

Starting at 5200m (17,000 ft) near Namuco in northern Tibet, the course tracks down to the Tashi Dor monastery at 4700m
(15,400ft). Amazing scenery at an average course altitude of (4866m/15,964ft).

The only downside is that at high-altitude, your blood oxygen level drops as low as 70%, resulting in rapid heart rate &
faster breathing. Basically, the higher you go, the slower you run - so this is a great race to ease back and take in the
incredible scenery.

If you've ever wanted to tick a high-altitude marathon off your bucket list, then the Roof of the World Marathon in Tibet
is definitely for you. Good luck !!

This is from the video posted by Mr.Brendan Smith at Youtube on August 23,2014.And if you could not see the Youtube,please see the same video we uploaded at Tudou,the largest video website in China:

If you are the first time to know the Roof of the World Marathon,you must be so excited to want to challenge the race at the so unique scenery in the world.

But sometimes you might be frightened and say that can you do that?

This is the reason that running the Roof of the World Marathon,you need to be with us in the itineraries from May 2,2015 till the May 9,2015.You are to be used to the high attitude day by day.

The first day when you fly with us from Beijing to Lhasa,you suddenly comes to the area of 3600m(11,811ft) above the see level.And you need to stay 3 days there to get used to the high attitude and do some relaxation and first training at the Garden of Dalai Lama.

Then on May 6,2015,we will move to an area of 4400m(14,435 ft)for the 10K Lonely Yak run and Half Marathon.

We are so happy to see that after the several days in Lhasa Tibet,that even a 13-year old American child succeeded finishing running the 10K at the first Roof of the World Marathon on May 6,2014.

if you feel the 10K is OK,you can choose to run the half marathon there.If that is enough for you,then on May 7,you would fly back to Beijing.

If you are so well prepared,then after your either 10K or half on May 6,2015,then you can move to run the half or the full on May 8,2014 in another areas,that is what you now see from this new video above.

It is so exciting after the Roof of the World Marathon,that was the feelings of the Top Organizer of the Roof of the World Marathon(also the top organizer of the Great Wall of China Marathon).He took most video for Brendan and Chris on May 8,2014,even though we have not totally released most of them.(We just released 0.1% of the videos and photos. We will use them in the Promotion Video which would be open in mid October 2014.)

The next day,he accompanied the runners back to Beijing,and some runners fly to other cities in China.

For the detail itinerary of the Roof of the World Marathon,you can take a look here below:
