Registration for Mesastila Peaks Challenge officially open
The Indonesia SuperTrail in this year's Asia Trail Master series has now officially opened the registration book. The MesaStila Peaks Challenge is a fantastic volcano run in Central Java, and accessible for the whole family. Ultra runners will focus on the 100k race across five volcano peaks, including Gunung Merapi with an altitude of over 2900m above sea level.
Total elevation gain is 7576 Hm on the 100k race, aka the 5 Peaks Challenge. If you feel Merapi is just one too high or too many, you can also go for the 65k and the 4 Peaks Challenge. Furthermore, the MesaStila Marathon over 42km is the perfect distance and race to get a solid taste of long distance mountain running. Less ambitious runners can also opt for the half marathon and the 13k run.
Host of the race is the 5-star luxury resort MesaStila, located in Magelang and a short distance away from the legendary Buddhist temple complex of Borobudur, which you can easily visit during your stay.
Last year the long distance race was won by eventual 2015 Asia Trail Master champion Arief Wismoyono, and Mila Marlina. As MesaStila Peaks Challenge is chosen as Indonesia's SuperTrail, finishers on the 100k and 65k will score 50 additional bonus points for the 2016 Asia Trail Master ranking.
