Mara Larson

Mara’s world lies in the remote and high peaks of the world. She start­ed out research­ing the brain at high alti­tude for NASA, based at Ever­est base camp. This led to her man­ag­ing climb­ing logis­tics on the moun­tain for over a decade. She’s assist­ed with Dis­cov­ery Chan­nel, the North Face, and on some of the high­est res­cues on the moun­tain, often aid­ing from above the ice­fall. In her down time, she orga­nizes trail races and run­ning trips across the Himalaya and the Alps, and works at devel­op­ing local run­ning tal­ent across Nepal. She’s climbed on Man­aslu, Ama Dablam, run speed ascents on Aconcagua, and stood on the podi­um in the Ever­est and Kath­man­du Marathons. She holds the Moun­tain Leader cer­ti­fi­ca­tion through the British sys­tem as well as the Amer­i­can WFR. And she’s most pas­sion­ate about shar­ing her Himalayan par­adise with those ven­tur­ing in for the first time!
