The 4th edition has been moved back on the calendar by one month, but otherwise the classic recipee remains. This is a 100k ultra that caters for the fast runners, or road runners wanting to get a little taste of trail. Nevertheless, BBTC is never to be underestimated and the "challenge" in the event title is there for a good reason. Alongside the 100 km, there will also be a 50 km and a 30 km for beginning runners. The 100 and 50 will be significant for Asia Trail Master championship points.
Please note that 2017 race details will be updated in due course.
