Marathon at Mount Everest. The highest 42,195 km in the world
The award-winning documentary follows german ultra distance runner and sports psychologist Dr. Michele Ufer on his way to the highest marathon of the world to Nepal.

How's the cultural interaction between Nepalis and people from other cultures living together in outdoor camps? What are the challenges and how do the participants deal with them? With such an extreme running event, anyone expecting to meet experienced, well-trained and perhaps even slightly mad competitive athletes exclusively will be extremely surprised.

In addition, he is used in the context of lectures on the topics of psychology, motivation, perseverance, big goals, limit experience and regularly provides a tremendous pinch of inspiration and positive discussion.
