Sungai Menyala Forest Trail (SMFT) is part of Asia Trail Master series 2017. Race categories are 50km, 25km, 10km and Kid Dash in this inaugural trail race in pristine forest in Port Dickson.
Note that only finishers on the 50 km receive points for the Asia Trail Master championship.
The route is relatively flat and a runnable course for fast runners without the hassle of technical trail. The heat would be the main challenge for this trail race, hydration strategy is substantial to finish this race.
Most interesting part the route will go though the tribal village (Kampung Orang Asli) near the forest. Overseas runners would get the most out of this cultural sighting during the race.
