This is a very tough mountain race that will please the ultra runners and mountain goats. The event has become an ATM classic as it has been a points race already in 2018, 2016 and 2015, when it was still labelled as Tsaigu Tangsi Plus. Now back in 2019 as Ultimate Tsaigu, this is one of the genuine and more international trail events in mainland China. The 110K is tough with 7000 Hm and you need to complete it in 32 hours. There is also a 80K with nearly 5000 Hm, to be done in 22 hours. Better come prepared!
The 110K is the A-race for the Championship.

Start place: Plaza of XingShanMen of Temple LongXingSi in Linhai.
