First ever EcoTrail-branded event in Asia, hosted by Putrajaya, a planned city and the federal administrative centre of the Malaysian capital. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya because of overcrowding and congestion in the former. Since then, Putrajaya has been the venue for many international sporting events and EcoTrail is the next in line. The technical organisation is in the hands of Ten Senses, who brought you TMMT.
“Trail running comes to the city” is the main slogan of EcoTrail. Start and finish will be in the city centre, and from there the course will lead through parks, forests, hillsides and along rivers and lakes. This is a very runable race that will please the road runners who like to get a taste of off-road running.
