On Episode 57 we extend our post-race coverage of The Snowman Race which was held in the Kingdom of Bhutan and billed as "The Ultimate Race for Climate Action" highlights how climate and weather events are affecting some of the most remote villages in the region. Thomas Reiss, an accomplished Ultra Runner in his own right took the reigns as the International Athlete Manager for the Snowman Race and he discusses this race of a lifetime that follows the trail of the famous Snowman Trek, which has been completed by fewer people than Everest.
