After a fun filled successful first year, now we are all gearing up for the 2nd Edition of Himalayan Rush.The Himalayan Rush triathlon is a result of our twin loves of running and Begnas Tal. It will be a real pleasure to participate in for those who love to run, cycle and swim. This event will also contribute to Begnas and its surrounding community.
Eventually we hope this will be an event that will stand out in the adventure calendar of Nepal and in the Sprint and Standard distance triathlon calendar of the world, as a truly unique and enriching experience.
For those who run, swim or cycle for pleasure, for those who aren’t winning any prizes for the distances or places they’ve covered, for those who continue to baffle the people in their lives, for those for whom it is no longer a choice but has become something they must do for their happiness, for their sanity and for themselves – Himalayan Rush is for you.
We are putting together this event, firstly for the love of the sport and to add a new sporting event to Nepal’s calendar. The vision of Himalayan Rush is to grow this event so that one day it will have a prominent position in the sporting calendar of the world. Our vision is also to be able to introduce a new sport to athletes in Nepal. We intend to actively interact using the platform of Nepal Triathlon Association so that one day Nepal can also have Triathletes participating in International events. We intend to take our energy and help the local community with a focus on education and healthcare. Begnas and the surrounding areas have provided us the ideal place for Himalayan Rush, so we definitely intend on giving something back to them. The Begnas Triathlon is just the beginning, Himalayan Rush will continue to push boundaries and bring more events for the Nepalese sporting calendar.
Himalayan Rush 2013 – 30th March 2013, Saturday. Easter weekend.
