The World’s Toughest Race

This race of a lifetime follows the trail of the famous Snowman Trek, which has been completed by fewer people than Everest. The audacious event appropriately turns up the heat, focused as it is on Climate Change.

THE ULTIMATE RACE FOR CLIMATE ACTION

Covering more than 300 kilometres (186 Miles) through the wild and challenging terrains with mountain passes as high as 5470M (17,946 feet) the Snowman Race is an ultra-marathon, challenging the world’s fittest and most elite runners to help raise awareness on the impacts of Climate Change.

Call For Action

Bhutan has made one of the world’s most far-reaching climate promises to forever remain carbon neutral and its forests helps keep the world’s climate change at bay by absorbing carbon dioxide.

Our Climate Impact & Action

Whilst a key goal of the Snowman Race is to raise awareness about climate change, we recognise that we are in-turn responsible for additional greenhouse gas emissions caused by event-related travel to Bhutan.

With the help of our partners, we are responsibly off-setting event related travel emissions. Capture (an app designed to track CO2 emissions) will help us transparently and accurately live-track emissions from each athlete and entourage member.
