Murghzar Zoo | Islamabad, IS

Margalla Trail Runners (MTR) is going to run on the most beautiful section of Margalla Hills Ridge Trail till 2 lakes Rawal and Khanpur viewpoint. The section will cover the most beautiful and spectacular views of Islamabad city Talhar Valley and most importantly Rawal and Khanpur Dam views from the top of the ridge trail. We will start running from Talhar Mor the entrance of trail 6/ridge trail and there will be a very easy run on a gradual section of the ridge and later will touch the top of the ridge trail section.

We are glad to share that MTR is introducing beginner-level trail group runs.

Previously MTR was organizing only one trail group run on Sundays. But now we have added another group trail run on Saturday mornings as well. Which will be designed to cater to beginners who want to start trail running and explore Margalla hills in short sessions using easier routes.

MTR welcomes people of all gender and age groups to our beginner group trail runs. MTR is also a strong supporter of promoting female running in Pakistan be it on trails or roads. So if you are a girl boy or senior citizen who wants to run on hills and learn about trail running then do join! We have a friendly group of trail runners who meet up every week.

We’ll gather at Islamabad Zoo parking at 7.30 am. Later we’ll leave for Talhar Mor by Carpooling or Cab/Taxi (If taxi then everyone will share the charges).
