The Yak Ru Enduro took place in the Manang district of the Annapurna Ranges, Nepal. The 3-day, multi-stage enduro format competition allowed participants the chance to mingle and socialise at intervals on untimed up hills and flat sections of the route, before racing against the clock on the descents. The event features seven race stages on Himalayan alpine & forest trails around the town of Manang and the greater Manang District of the Annapurna Conservation Area. These include a variety of steep, technically-demanding, and physically-challenging downhill trails all between 3300m and 4300m altitude, making it the highest enduro mountain bike race in the world held in 2017.
