Yale Alumni Trip to Bhutan – May 18-28, 2014

Are you an avid runner, or do enjoy trekking or like to travel to exotic places? If so, join Yale alumni on a 12-day trip (May 18-28) to Bhutan, a beautiful Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas that, according to a UN report, is one of the happiest countries in the world. They have a Minister of Happiness as well as a Gross National Happiness index!

Participation in a race is optional, but for those interested in running, there is a half-marathon and marathon on May 27. Here is a link to more details:


We expect to have a large enough group that the prices should be about UK £500 less than the posted rates for the 12-day trip.

If you have any questions and/or wish to reserve a spot on this amazing trip, please email Mike Gratton (info@209events.com) with 2:09 Events, a company whose name is derived from the marathon time of the company director and founder Mike Gratton (who won the London Marathon with that time in 1983) and let him know that you’d like to join the Yale Alumni Group. Please copy My Luu (Yale ’96 and founder of Yale Endurance Racing Alumni, a shared interest group; myluu@aya.yale.edu) and Lindsey Blumenthal (lindsey.blumenthal@aya.yale.edu) in your email to Mike so that we can include you in plans not outlined on the website (such as potential gatherings with Yale alumni in Bhutan). Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis; a deposit of UK £500 per person is required to reserve a spot. Yale alumni trip participants get a discounted race entry fee of UK £120.

You are welcome to use frequent flier miles to get to Delhi (the 12-day package already includes the flights to/from Delhi and Bhutan). Should you need to buy tickets for the international flights, we encourage you to buy your tickets as soon as possible to get the lower airfares.

If you cannot join this trip but would like to be added to the Yale Endurance Racing Alumni email distribution for future events and trips, please take a moment to complete the following:


We look forward to having you on this amazing once-in-a-lifetime trip!
