Update on the Mailrun attempt in 2016

Re-posted from June 2016

My apologies for the lack of updates immediately before the run on 29 May, during the run over the 2/3 days, and afterwards. 

Anyway... much to say, but to the point. I started at 07.00 on Sunday 29 May along with the Everest Marathon runners as planned, after 13 days hiking and training from near Jiri, up to Base Camp.

Why do the Mailrun?

Why do the Mailrun?

So why do the Everest Mailrun? Several reasons. The main one happened on April 25 last year, when a devastating earthquake hit Nepal. I saw the news breaking of the disaster and recognised places I’d visited just two years before.
