Snowman run will be an annual event to raise awareness of global warming. Global warming is evident from the climate change seen around the world. Its a real threat to low lying countries and even to highland countries.
Every year we see erratic rainfall and various destructive forces of nature from flooding to huge wind surge destroying life and property around the world.
During the snowman run athletes will cover around 300km and will cross an altitude of around 5320 meters. They will get to see themselves the actual effect of climate change on the highland.
Our glaciers are receding and our moraine dams are giving way to devastating floods downstream. We have seen several flood in the last twenty years. Our rivers are slowly drying up. Its a matter of great concern and our drinking water source might dry up several years later.
