Dachiri Dawa SHERPA
/ Trail running
I started running in 1994 and have not stopped since. I have participated in races in many countries. But the one that really stays in my mind is the Himal Race in 2002, when I crossed my country from the Annapurna peaks to the Everest base camp. Since then I have won over a hundred races including the UTMB® in 2003, and recently in 2012: the TDS®, the Restonica, the UTAT and the Sky Race des Ecrins…
In 2003, I took my first steps in the world of cross-country skiing, becoming the flag-bearer and sole representative of Nepal at the Olympic Games in Turin in 2006. I also took part in the Vancouver games in 2010 and do not intend to stop there.
