Everest Base Camp: A Year of Action and Adventure

Adventure lovers planning to embark on an Everest Base Camp trek in 2013 can join the excitement surrounding the legendary Everest Marathon.


Gloucestershire, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/27/2013 -- The summer of 2013 is set to see plenty of buzz around Mount Everest, which was first summitted 60 years ago this May – but the anniversary of the first ascent is not the only big event happening at this time.

The 29th of May also sees the annual Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon, named for those legendary first summiteers.

Everest Base Camp, trek destination for thousands every year, and stopping point for those preparing their own assault on the summit, will also be the starting point for the 42 kilometre Marathon, which will end at the Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar.

Those who are not marathon runners themselves but nevertheless wish to soak up the buzz can do so with an Everest Base Camp trek, which provides just as much of a challenge and test of personal resilience.
