Third edition of what has quickly become one of Asia’s finest. Hosted by the fantastic Singha Park, it is an event that caters for everyone and has two ultra race distances that qualify for ATM Championship points: the 230 km and the 122K and they are obviously also valid for the Grandmaster Quest. The 66K race also has championship points on offer, but being the C-race these are obviously limited. Elevation gain is considerable, yet not excessive. While the 230K is obviously for super endurance athletes, the 122K appeals to runners with a fast pace as well.
In 2019, the Ultra Trail Chiang Rai will be labeled as the Thailand SuperTrail with 50 bonus points for all finishers on the 230K, 122K and 66K.
