Nepali ultra trail runner Mira Rai has won MARATHON MONT BLANC 2015 (80k-Skyrunning)

Its a proud moment for Nepal. Congratulation to Mira. She has won the 80 km of the Marathon (Champion), France by completing the trails in 12h 32mn 12s on women’s categories.
Mira plans to run the following Skyrunning races this season in Europe.
27th June – Mont Blanc Ultra 80km
2nd August – Tromso Ultra 45km
19th September – Ultra Pirineu 103 km
And perhaps some races in between.

Some details about Mira collected from online resources
From a tiny hilltop village in Eastern Nepal, like most girls in Nepal, Mira’s young life was very active: walking to school, doing farm work, hauling water from the bottom of the hill, walking days to the market and returning with a heavy load.
Mira dropped out of school at 14 and joined Maoist rebels for two years, effectively becoming a child soldier.
Years later, Mira travelled to Kathmandu to try for success in road & track running. By chance she discovered the sport of trail and endurance running in the hills around Kathmandu, and realised that her daily life growing up – carrying water up to her village, and carry rice for seven hours to market – had prepared her for a little bit of success.
