Inaugural edition of Ultra Trail Chiang Mai, produced and directed by the teelakow crew. Race course designer is one of Thailand’s best - if not the best - trail runners, Jay Jantaraboon, who hails from this northern Thai city. The main race will be 104 km in length and has 3900 hm: not excessive, so good runners may be at play here.
The race venue is close the city of Chiang Mai, so this will be one of the easy-to-access races this year: runners who need to keep their racing within the confines of a weekend, take note!
