The High Altitude Summer Marathon is a challenging marathon with 3 distances through the pristine Maluti Mountains in the Kingdom of Lesotho.
The Marathon is a very challenging event even for the most seasoned marathon runner, and yet at the same time affords an invigorating course for the keen athlete. The greatest challenge at such a high altitude for athletes not accustomed to the altitude is breathing.
The course, which takes the runners through picturesque villages and amazing mountain views, is done on flat asphalt and gravel roads. It is marked by steep ascents and descents.
