It is essential to know the correct way over this often unmarked technical mountain run, whether you are racing to win, looking for a PB, conserving energy or chasing important cut off times.
Topsport Kayaking offers professional guided trips over the Kathmandu Coast to Coast mountain run stage. Our local guides Sam Manson and Daniel Jones know this route inside and out. Our trips are run in small groups to ensure you get the best experience possible with plenty of interaction with your guide. You will get the opportunity to ask plenty of questions, take notes, photos, and even videos that you can review after your trip if you want to.
Our guides are well trained to ensure your safety is the top priority. From river crossings to managing both mountain and bush environments as well as temperamental weather. We carry all the right gear to ensure we are well prepared to look after you.
We cater for all abilities so don't be shy if you think you might be slow. Same goes if your a speedster, you're in the right place. Our team will help save you valuable time on race day with your route choice.
To complete this trip it is highly recommended that you have reasonable fitness level to run/power walk 25km and that you have done some training off road trial running and have found a local spot to practice some rock hopping.
** Saturday 11th December 2021. This date is aimed at athletes looking to take a little more time over Goat Pass and spend a good part of the day powering walking and hiking. We will still have our normal paced group as well.
** Saturday 8th of January 2022. This date is for any athletes who are looking to go through with Daniel Jones at a faster pace. This is not for first timers. You must have done Goat Pass a few times before and ideally have done the Coast to Coast already. We will still have our normal paced group as well.

Here's what our runners have to say:
"Had a fab day out on Goats Pass with the guys from Topsport. Learned some new lines, and thanks to Sam and Dan grew in confidence. Managed to take an hour off my time. Would definitely recommend, thanks guys" Warren Brown, December 2020
"Preparing for my first Coast I did Goat Pass with Topsport. The conditions were challenging but the team made the day fun and safe. Dan, Lachie, and Ryan made sure we had a good time while learning lots. It gave me a load of confidence and set me up for a great Coast." Steve Hodgson, January 2021
"Thank you for the brilliant mountain run training. As an older (Female Classic) first timer, I was incredibly nervous. I was made to feel immediately welcome, the pace of the run was spot on, and the insights and technique guidance invaluable. I did the Mountain run 45 minutes faster than I expected on race day. A special thank you to Lachie who told me to trust my shoes – with that mantra the confidence and speed in my rock running improved exponentially" Kay Chapman January 2021
