Over the Clouds: Panchase Ultra Trail Race (November 2023)(2023 )

Pokhara Trail Race Series was established in 2017 as a platform for both National and International trail runners of Nepal to train hard on the trails of Nepal and prepare for international trail runs.
With a mission of providing a fun environment that is suitable for every level of trail runners, the PTRS has prepared the trails with distances between 5km - 7km to accommodate the new runners. Similarly, a 1k race for kids to introduce them to the world of running, and 15 to 100K distance races to test the limits of experienced and advanced runners, also prepare them for international championships. Moreover, not only being limited to conducting trail running races, the Pokhara Trail Race Series also protects the old trails that hold the history for trail running by maintaining the trails and promoting the old trails among national and international runners.
