Lisa Tamati to join the Manaslu Mountain Trail race

Lisa tamatiHere’s great news. New Zealand’s Lisa Tamati will be coming to run Manaslu this November. North face Athlete Lisa’s endurance running CV is longer than most of our running strides. Click the image below to download Lisa’s bio document and get to know her a bit!

For the other competitors, this is a great opportunity to run alongside a super-talented athlete, ask questions to their heart’s content about how she does it, and be inspired for their own run in the mountains.

Lisa says, “If there is one country in the world that every trail runner if not everyone longs to visit its Nepal.the majesty of the Himalayas and its people captures the imagination: exotic, remote, beautiful; but no doubt also back-breakingly hard and a mission for the lungs. I have had the privilege of running many of the most beautiful places in the world but the majesty of the Manaslu trail race will no doubt top them all. Come join us on this adventure of a lifetime!”

Lisa will be joined by Chris Ord. To get to know Chris, have a read about his and Lisa’s 126km desert adventure earlier this year. Together they will film their participation in the race, which as organisers, pleases us greatly.

We’re very much looking forward to seeing you both in November!
