"Dream comes true to participate in the Race on the trails of Margalla Hills". I visited back in 2005 and ran on Trail 3. It was my wish that trail races should be organized here because Pakistan is blessed with so beautiful and mighty mountains.

Margalla Trail Runners is doing a great job to promote trail running in Pakistan. Trail running is growing rapidly around the world. “This is how it all started in #Europe, first it was only small groups of 15-20 racers joining trail races and then after a few years it grew really big!”. MTR is organizing such kinds of trail running events and races which will connect with as many great runners as possible around the world.
