Mongolia (November 17, 2017) – In 1999, a small crowd of adventure seeking runners met at the shores of beautiful Lake Hovsgol in Northern Mongolia for the first ever Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset 100km trail run. The organizers did not only pioneer ultra-trail running in Asia, but also established a charity organization to support the local population and the unique environment. “When we discovered this remote, untouched and stunningly beautiful area, we decided to put our efforts into preserving it. Over the years, we funded a litter control project, bought garbage trucks, hired park rangers, supported the local culture including shamans, and raised awareness with nation-wide TV spots”, explains Nicolas Musy, one of the founders and race director of MS2S. All the proceeds from Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset are used to finance these charity initiatives.

Two decades later, runners from all over the world will come together to take part in the 20th edition of the race, taking place on August 1st, 2018. MS2S is more than just a one-day marathon and ultra-marathon race: It offers a full week of adventure and exploration (July 28th to August 4th). Participants get in touch with the nomadic culture of the population and learn about Mongolian traditions, beliefs, and way of life. In the days before and after the race, they experience the unique nature by kayaking, horseback riding, mountain biking or fishing. MS2S opens new perspectives.

 

It was an outstanding event - not to be missed. I have often been asked to name the race that I enjoyed most. My previous hesitations to name my favorite event are now replaced by a certitude: Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset.”

Register now!

Registrations for this once-in-a-lifetime experience are now open on www.ms2s.org.

Reduced package prices for the race week are available until end of February. The race is limited to 100 runners!

On their quest to complete this spectacular course, runners pass by wild horses and yaks, seas of wildflowers, the craggy mountains and windblown lowlands. The race is not only beautiful but also challenging: The accumulated elevation gain/loss in the marathon distance is more than 2.200 meters, in the 100km ultra run it is more than 3.300 meters. Still, everybody with a strong spirit and good training can complete the race. The cut-off time is 18 hours.

IMH Full Moon Registration Extended thru 15 Aug 2017

There has been an overwhelming response to the opening of registration for the Mekong Indochina Full Moon Hash. Within hours of registration opening, the advertised limit of 100 was reached and in less than 24 hours the number reached over 150.

It does not seem reasonable to deny anyone entry to the event because they were a few minutes later to register than someone else. Hence, although the intention is to try and limit the size of the pack to make everything more manageable and enjoyable, registrations will be accepted for the next 7-days. Registration will now close at midnight on 13 August 2017. After that, you will be out of luck unless your powers of bribery are irresistible.

IMH 2017 Full Moon Hash Registration Opens

The traditional Mekong Full Moon Run will take place on Monday evening, 6 November 2017. This is a separate event from the main Mekong Hash weekend. Registration is now open and will be limited to the first 100 people to sign up. As is traditional, the Hash fee will be payable at the event. As yet, the fee is unknown because it will only be decided after BoBo has done all the legwork to set it all up and he knows how much he needs to charge to cover his expenses. If the past is any guide it should be around US $ 25 for the run and after party. This is undoubtedly the worst-kept secret in the must-attend Hash calendar.
