Borneo TMBT Ultra Marathon enters the Asia Trail Master series


We are proud to welcome another big race and a new country in the inaugural Asia Trail Master series: the TMBT Ultra Trail Marathon on Borneo in Malaysia joins the calendar on 29 August. Arguably the biggest trail run in the country, The Most Beautiful Thing, to say TMBT in full, is a genuine rainforest run on and around Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South East Asia. Runners can choose between 100km and 55km race distances, and for beginners there is also a shorter version available. Finishers on the two longest distances will score points for the Asia Trail Master ranking and championship. 

Sabah is known as a fantastic adventure holiday destination, and you will be amazed by the natural beauty of Kinabalu National Park. The trail course does not include a summit climb for safety reasons, yet has an impressive total of 6000 altitude metres. The 55km route is equally hard with 3500 Hm. Consider in addition the tropical climate and you understand that this race should not be your first 100k race. 

Although TMBT is anything but a walk in the park, the local running community loves it and the event has sold out very quickly in Malaysia. However,  international runners have an exclusive chance to still register for this year via Asia Trail Master. Fifteen places are on offer for the 100km main event and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. You can sign up via our online form. 

The race registration fee is USD 180 and includes: 

-Race participation
-Bus Transfer (return journey) from Kota Kinabalu 
-Event T-Shirt
-Event Finishers Medal
-Event Finisher's T-shirt

Note that you will need to collect your bib and participant bag on Friday,28 August 2015 between 9.00am and 4.00pm, and only at Pacific Sutera Harbour Resort. No bags will be given after the 4.00pm deadline as the organizing team packs up for a 2 hour 30 minute journey to the finish point of the race at Mount Kinabalu and the Ranau district. Please keep in mind when signing up and making your travel plans.
