The First Shangri-La

The latest issue of Trail Run Mag is out this week and we are honored that it features a huge article covering the Inaugural Shangri-La Marathon & Ultra. Giving runners and readers a taste of the experience that participants had while attending the spectacular event in the grand Himalayan mountains last April. Sharing the heart and soul behind the race it touches on the vision created by the passionate event organizers. It also features our very own Ambassador Brendan on his journey in helping to organize and then to run the race, his first 50k ultra distance.

The article is a great read and as an added bonus, this issue also features our next race, the Yunnan Puzhehei International Marathon, in the Event Preview section, plus a tease for the Rice Terrace Marathon in the Trail Porn section, a race we are developing to launch in 2016. The rest of the issue is filled to the brim with great trail running material, not to mention all the spectacular trail porn from around the world. Download your copy today!
