Running in probably the most beautiful half marathon in the world

I have run marathons in various countries in 6 continents, and some half marathons, but last week, when I ran the course we have set for the Shimla Half Marathon, I found it breathtaking. Both literally because of the altitude and the gradient in parts, and figuratively because of the natural beauty of "The Queen of the Hills" and the historic buildings of "The Summer Capital of India"

Here is a pictorial view of the route - enjoy the run!!

The next half in Shimla will be next October but we will have a few shorter races earlier - maybe even have a half - next summer
