After a successful inaugural edition as ATM Candidate Race in July 2017, the Plataran X Trail in Bali becomes a proper points race in the Asia Trail Master Championship series. The event has been moved back to 6 October and will keep the fantastic Plataran Hotel and Resort as the race venue. Moreover, taking place one weekend after Ijen Trailrunning in close-by East Java, international runners can come and spend a week in this wonderful part of Indonesia. A special Wolf the Trail package including both events will be announced in due course.

The long distance race of Plataran X Trail Bali measures 70 km and 1000 metres of elevation gain. Of course, given the nature of the West Bali region, the course is quite runnable, even though the first part will contain more hills than last year. For sure it is no walk in the park, and rising temperatures during the day will be an extra obstacle.
