Godavari Running Festival is the brainchild of outdoor sports promoters and hardcore ultra trail running enthusiasts of Nepal. The name Godavari comes from the famous religious site in Lalitpur District, 11 kilometres southeast from Lagankhel in Lalitpur, where this running festival has been held annually since 2014. The event has been held at the Godavari School premises each year after the monsoon rains. This is a family event meant to promote an active and outdoor lifestyle. Godavari Running Festival began as a small, event with about a hundred participants in its first year, and growing to over 300 participants in its second year, over 400 in its third year and forth year.
We have enquiries from abroad as well this year, so we are very excited. We plan to grow even bigger and aim to double the number of participants with each passing year. Over the coming years we also plan to increase the number of sports included in the festival.
In the 2018 edition of the Godavari Running Festival, we plan to do the following events:
a. The North Face 50 km Ultra Race
b. Suunto 30K Trail Run
c. La Sportiva 15K Trail Run
d. TNF 5K YETI Run
