Running Retreat in the Bhutan Himalayas


  • Bhutan

The Sister Marathon Initiative’s Exclusive Marathon and Cultural Immersion Adventure in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is travel at its most iconic. Amidst the wonders of high mountains and deep valleys where compassion and wisdom are the benchmarks against which all things are measured, you will experience the ancient and harmonious Buddhist traditions resonating in all living things, where the King rules by “Gross National Happiness."

Each day's rich slate of activities consist of inspirational running seminars on technique, strengthening and nutrition, scenic group runs, cooking classes, spa and meditation retreats and cultural encounters with local people. As either a spectator, volunteer or runner, this once-in-a-lifetime adventure culminates with your participation in the Bhutan International Marathon or Half Marathon.
