Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon

The Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon is called the Last Run- it is one of the names given out of love and is first of a kind event in India. Many people argued how the name Last Run sounds grim. But due to the rising issues of global warming and greenhouse effect, anything can happen. 

Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon

This event is organized by Adventure Sports Foundation of Ladakh with the main motive to spread awareness on the issue of global warming. We know how the issue has been around and all the people are concerned about the same. For years we have not experienced the same winters like we used to. Climate change and its effect has been drastically affecting people around and these sports games are a chance to spread awareness for the same.

Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon will be a long 20 km marathon organized by the Adventure Sports Foundation of Ladakh. The venue is perfect for this type of sport. If you wish to participate, you can via the registration process. Just visit the link and book your participation.

For those who think this marathon is easy, just a simple up and go- it’s so not. It’s more than a run. Take it from the weather conditions as the ice and cold weather will make the marathon trial tricky. Selection of the runners will be based on previous marathon experiences. Those who have experienced high altitude adventure sports like around 10K feet and above will be considered. Normal candidates cannot apply and participate, they have to clear the needed acclimatisation process.

It’s for their own safety and security- the marathon isn’t a game but an initiative to spread Environmental awareness. You have to clear many prospects before enrolling in the same. It doesn’t matter how fit you are, the experience matters. The weather conditions may be harsh on many (it’s cold and icy) that may prove fatal to even the healthy individuals. 

The Pangong Frozen Lake Marathon will take place at 13,682 ft altitude and has a chance to register itself in the Guinness World Record. The trek will be across the Pangong Tso- the run is going to be a unique and special one. 

The region is also ecologically sensitive and hence runners will be highly selective. Runners will be on the package of 9D/8N that will include training, food, stay, airport transport from Leh. Are you ready for the thrill?
