Join us on March 3, 2018 for the Bhutan International Marathon and Half Marathon in one of the world’s most mysterious, beautiful and inaccessible countries.

medalThe Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is a land of high mountains and deep valleys where compassion and wisdom are the benchmark against which all things are measured, and where the King rules by ‘Gross National Happiness’.

On your 26.2 miles (42 kms) or 13.1 miles (21 kms) journey through stunning rural countryside and villages, before finishing at the historic Punakha Dzong, you’ll discover the geographical and cultural wonders of a country naturally designed to be a tantalizing destination for adventure and spiritual seekers.

100% of the profits made through this event will support Bhutan’s Youth and Olympic Sports programs. Come for the event, and stay for the travel experience of a lifetime.

Runizen and the Bhutan International Marathon would like to apologize for the change in the result sheet. The oversight was caused by the failure in the chip timing system to correctly consolidate the age input, on time. The new 2nd and 3rd prize winners may collect their prizes from the Bhutan Olympic Committee during office hours, at your earliest convenience.
