In this episode of Run with Fitpage, we discuss the Ladakh Marathon – one of the toughest footraces in the world – with its Founder, Chewang Motup Goba. We cover all that you need to know, necessary precautions, and more with our host, Vikas Singh.

Chewang Motup's passion for the mountains of Ladakh and the Himalayas drives his innovative approach, ensuring Rimo Expeditions remains India's leading adventure travel company. Born in the Nubra Valley of Ladakh, Motup's mountaineering journey began at a young age. After boldly joining an Indian army expedition to Mt. Everest in 1985 at just 19, he went on to guide groundbreaking traverses of the Siachen Glacier and led expeditions across Nepal, Alaska, and the Indian Himalayas. Motup's extensive knowledge of the region has made him a sought-after consultant for mountaineers worldwide. He is also the founder of the Ladakh Marathon, aiming to promote running as a sport and showcase Ladakh's resilience after the 2010 flash floods. As a Padma Shri awardee, Motup continues to advocate for adventure tourism's growth and is actively involved in community initiatives, including supporting ice hockey in Leh and lobbying for policy changes.
