Lizzy Hawker to run the Manaslu Mountain Trail Race

Lizzy Hawker loves the mountains and where better to find mountains than the Himalaya. She’s been several times to Nepal, always completing a tough running challenge, from the Everest Sky Race, (parts of) The Great Himalaya Trail, the 319km Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu run and so on.

The Manaslu Race will provide good training for The North Face race in San Francisco at the beginning of December. Great to have you with us Lizzy!
