Join the virtual Empower Challenge to support our new athletes!

Join the Empower Challenge to challenge yourself and to empower women from disadvantaged backgrounds. Run or hike the Empower Marathon 42km or Empower 100km virtual courses through the Everest region in Nepal over the month of December in one or many sessions!  

The Exchange and Empower Training and Education Scholarship run by the Mira Rai Initiative supports high-potential female athletes from Nepal from disadvantaged backgrounds, giving them the opportunity to focus on athletic training, education and professional development.   

Since 2018, we have supported 10 athletes.  For 2021, we have selected 6 athletes that we hope to support starting in January 2021.  In order to do this, we need to raise HK$200,000 (US$26,000) for 2020.  Due to COVID-19, we have lost many corporate sponsorships so we hope that you can help us realize this goal! 

You’ll be able to track everyone’s progress as they take on this race!

RACE COMMENCES on 1st DEC 8am HKT. Race fee is HK$250 for both distances. 100% of the registration fee will go towards this meaningful cause.
