The event, which has been dubbed ‘the most beautiful race in the world', is a 24 mile stage race which involves running and walking up 8,500 feet.
Jonathan, a member of Mencap's extreme team, describes the race:
"I've just come back from an amazing week running through the Indian Himalayas. This challenge included running 100 miles over five days up and down the stunning hills of the Himalayas, and boy were there some hills. Once at the top of this massive hill we had some of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen. Our backdrop for the next two days was four out of five of the world's highest mountains, including Everest.
It really was an amazing place to be. Everyone was there supporting each other and helping them through what was a very tough five days of running. Thanks to everyone at Mencap for making this week possible and I am already looking forward to my next challenge which is a 150 mile seven day run across the Sahara Desert."
