FOR THE SERIOUS ATHLETES OUT THERE, THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN CYCLING
In the heart of the Lesotho Highlands lies the Maluti Mountains, some of the best terrain for high altitude running in the world. Serving as the “veins” of this region, an intricate network of trails exists along the valleys and mountain flanks, connecting many of the remote villages.
Used primarily by livestock and shepherds, many of the mountain passes have been established by hand, allowing people and animals to pass through the Maluti Mountain Range on foot. It is this ancient philosophy of man’s primal need to explore and conquer his surrounding terrain that has lead to the development of the Lesotho Ultra Trail, Africa’s first Ultra Skymarathon.
Three athletes on DIfferent.org will be running this 50km trail run. If you are interested in running contact Andrew – email@example.com – and go to their webpage – http://www.lesothoultratrail.com/
