Mount Mulanje Porters Race

The annual Mount Mulanje Porters Race takes place tomorrow for the 10th time.

The race starts at Likhubula Forest Office and goes up to Chambe Plateau, about 2500m above see level, before proceeding (via the plateau) to Lichenya Plateau and back to Likhubula. Last year’s winner ran this tiring 25km race in 2 hrs and 21 min.

  • Apparently this blogger organized the first race.
  • The Nation on this year’s event (link no longer available)

And if you have photos, don’t forget to upload them to the Malawi group at Flickr.
