From 14 to 16 October. runners will gather on Jeju Island for a three-day stage race of 100 km in total. Ultra Trail Jeju is an established event in Korea and is known as a great long weekend trip.

Beginning runners can also opt for a 1-day race on Saturday, the 15th over a distance of 18km.
Jeju is a volcanic island and therefore very fertile. Several environmental projects take place on Jeju, and some sites are also protected. If you join the event, basic hotel accommodation and meals are provided via the race registration fee, so you really do not need to worry about much. The three stages also start in the morning, so you have the afternoon free for sightseeing and relaxing.
Ultra Trail Jeju offers 100 finisher points for those who complete the three stages, as well as performance points according to the standard points table. The winner thus scores 500 points for his 2016 championship total. In addition, runners who finish the three stages also collect 1 poiint for the Grandmaster Quest.
