Race information

Nestling in the hills of Darjeeling, and with breathtaking views of the Himalayan range, is a one-of-a-kind event that combines the love for running with the natural beauty and cultural richness of the region. This race is a journey through the mesmerising landscapes, the vibrant culture and a testament to the enduring spirit of the participants. The route takes you through lush tea gardens, offering runners a chance to inhale the aroma of Darjeeling's world-famous tea. As you ascend through the hilly terrain the cloud piercing Kanchenjunga Mountains - the world's third-highest peak - form a majestic backdrop. The cool, crisp mountain air invigorates every step, making the JBG Gorkha 10K a unique and challenging experience. What sets this event apart is its celebration of the Gorkha heritage. Along the event, you'll encounter traditional music and dance which reflects the rich culture of the region. The local communities come together to support the runners and create an atmosphere of warmth and camaraderie. You will also have the opportunity to visit the highest railway station in India, the Ghum station of the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. The race is a cultural immersion, a tribute to the Gorkha heritage, and an opportunity to connect with fellow runners who share your passion for adventure. Join us in Darjeeling, India, for a run like no other, where the mountains themselves cheer you on.
