Racing at Altitude
By Clare Morin   As competitors were flying into Nepal to undertake the first Roving Race in a mountainous region, some were wondering whether altitude was going to play a big part in the race.   Altitude sickness often strikes those who...
The Children of Nepal
By Clare Morin If you ask competitors who the stars of this year’s Roving Race have been, they will probably say that it was the countless children along the course. Comments were streaming in from competitors throughout the week about these delightful...
Ultra-Dentist
By Clare Morin Stan Lee sits by the campfire on the long rest day and considers what it is that pushed him though seven 250-kilometer races in one calendar year. It began in March 2010 and included the 4 Deserts Grand Slam....
The Women

Nepal and the Fine Art of Volunteering
By Clare Morin We are sitting with Tony Brammer in a gorgeous teahouse in the village of Birethanti, when it occurs to us that this is the first time that Brammer has actually been to camp. “I haven’t been in camp,” he...
Behind the Scenes of Nepal
By Clare Morin This year is the first time that the Roving Race has ventured to a mountainous region, which has brought the need for a fair amount of logistical wizardry. Although the course does not go into high altitudes, it is...
Running on Empty
By Clare Morin   Conversing with Marshall Ulrich about the mind of an endurance athlete is a fascinating way to pass the time. This elite American athlete has done more than 120 ultra marathons, climbed the highest mountains on every continent, and...
A Family Affair
By Clare Morin Although it often seems like one person’s struggle against the very limits of their mental and physical capacity, RacingThePlanet events are also known for their strong sense of community. The deep bonds that form between competitors are hard to...
Nepal: Home of RacingThePlanet 2011
  By Clare Morin Competitors are now thick into the action of the first RacingThePlanet event to take place in Nepal. The race is unfolding in the setting of the Annapurna massif, a mountain range in north-central Nepal that is renowned for...
Moving Mountains
By Clare Morin It is early evening in the lush setting of the Fulbari Resort and Spa in Pokhara, and a group of American competitors sit in the lobby of the exquisite hotel. There are hundreds of photographs of young children spread...
The South African Dynamo
By Clare Morin Ryan Sandes is sporting the beginnings of a serious Movember-Mo (that’s facial hair grown in aid of a global, mustache-growing charity event) when we corner him in the Fulbari Resort & Spa in Pokhara.   But hairy upper-lips are...
What the Newcomers Have to Say
By Clare Morin There is something magic at work as competitors prepare for the RacingThePlanet “roving” event in Nepal. The eagerly anticipated location for the self-supported footrace has attracted a record number of new participants - while half of the competitors are...
Nepal, long an expected location for RacingThePlanet
By Sam Healey Choosing the location for RacingThePlanet’s annual roving event is an enviable task. With the opportunity to race in so many diverse countries, climates, terrains and cultures, the list of possible sites is legion.  However, for RacingThePlanet’s founder Mary Gadams,...
