The Great Malaya Trail is a 2020 Candidate
The Great Malaya Trail across three states in peninsular Malaysia is the latest new Candidate Race for our 2020 Championship series, scheduled for 19/20 October. Organised by the experienced crew of Team Pacat, the Great Malaya Trail will be a technical race with over 6600 hm elevation gain on the 100 km, making it rather unique for the country - known for its rainforest but unlike Indonesia without the abundance of high mountains. The centre of the event, which also offers 50km, 30km and 16km options, is Taman Negeri Kenaboi, Negeri Sembilan, as finish location for all four race categories.
The event will cross 3 state lines on both the 100k and 50k options: Pahang, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan, and offer 95% of pure trail. Along the way runners will climb several hills, cross streams and rivers and enjoy local hospitality. The event will also offer convenient hotel stay in the Kuala Lumpur Sentral area, from where shuttle bus services can take runners to their relevant starting point ( Kem Ghafar Baba, Kampung Kemensah, Selangor for 100k runners, Pangson Trail Head, Selangor, for 50k runners).
Registration is open via the quality service provided by Checkpoint Asia.
