KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) 2023
KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) is presented to you by MMTF Consultant and Persatuan Gunung Tioman. KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) will be held between 6 – 8 October 2023 at Kampung Air Batang, Tioman, Pahang.
KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) 2023 is the 2nd #LoseYourMindDIscoverYourSoul project after The North Face Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival in Taiping, Perak. To runners, it’s about being provided with an “exotic playground” which would allow them to Lose Their Minds and Discover Their Souls. To the management, #LoseYourMindDiscoverYourSoul also signifies projects that we believe would contribute to the community where the race is held.
KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) 2023 will not only contribute economically to the community surrounding the race, but would also allow the management team to develop humans, more specifically the younger islanders in the area of event management.
KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) will see runners gunning for honour in the 10KM L5 Challenge, 25KM L7 Challenge, and 50KM L9 Challenge.
Runners will be taken around the paradise island through the pristine and untouched jungle trails. Runners will be tested with multiple elevation gains of 500m for the 10KM, 1750m for the 25KM, and 2900m for the 50KM. The race will give every runner a chance of a lifetime to experience different trails, which form the geographical landscape of the paradise island..
The 10KM race is a “LEVEL 5 (L5)” mountain running challenge which has well-mixed terrains that we trust best-fit beginners.
The 25KM race is a “LEVEL 7 (L7)” mountain running challenge that has undulated uphill and downhill, which seems endless.
50KM ULTRA CHALLENGE is the ultimate challenge at KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) 2023 and is a “LEVEL 9 (L9)” mountain running challenge. Runners will be taken to Gunung Kajang, the highest peak in Tioman before journeying through the “dragons back” ridge from Old Juara Road to Kampung Salang.
KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) 2023 is part of the Asia Trail Master (ATM) 2024 Championship Series Candidate Race. We trust by having the best in the region to compete against one another by being in the ATM Championship Series, will help enhance the standard of the competition.
The 25KM and 50KM race course are expected to be granted 2 ITRA POINTS and 3 ITRA POINTS respectively based on evaluation by International Trail Running Association (ITRA ). KAILAS TIOMAN ULTRA (TU50) 2023 is part of Malaysia Ultra League (MUL), ITRA National League, and is one of the ever-growing UTMB® World Series Qualifiers races.
