Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival (MMTF) is co-organized by Jabatan Perhutanan Negeri Perak, MMTF Consultant and Larut Matang Hash House Harriers and Harriets. Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival 2021 (V.4.0) will be held between 17th December 2021 – 19th December 2021 at Esplanade, Taiping, Perak, West Malaysia.

Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival 2021 (V.4.0) will take runners through 13KM, 25KM, 50KM and 84KM of pristine trails in Taiping with elevation gain of 600m, 1200m, 2500m and 4800m (+)(-) respectively. The race will give every runner a chance of a lifetime to experience different trails around Taiping Lake Gardens and the iconic Maxwell Hill.

The 13KM race is the “Freshman Run” and with a new course in 2021, we trust that it will best fit the beginners.

The 25KM race will also come with new course in 2021, which best fits the synonym “BALL BREAKER”.

Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival 2021 (V.4.0) will have 2 versions of Ultra Challenge namely the 50KM ULTRA CHALLENGE and the 84KM ULTRA CHALLENGE.

The 25KM (1 ITRA POINT), 50KM (3 ITRA POINTS) and 84KM (4 ITRA POINTS) race courses have been evaluated and certified by International Trail Running Association (ITRA) and are part of the list of qualifying races for Ultra Trail Du Mont Blanc (UTMB).

The 50KM and 84KM race course have also been certified by International Skyrunning Federation (ISF). Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival is the 1st race thus far in Malaysia to be accorded the ISF Certified Course Label and is the 2nd race in South East Asia and 5th in Asia-Pacific to be given such recognition.

Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival 2021 (V.4.0) has been accorded Asia Trail Master (ATM) 2020/2021 Championship season finale status. Besides having the best in the region to compete against one another in the ATM’s “Season Finale”, we trust this latest development will help enhance the standard of “ultra-trail” running to another level here in Malaysia.

Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival 2021 (V.4.0) is also part of Malaysia Ultra League (MUL) 2021 season.

Just like in 2019, we will be holding a “Welcoming Party” before everyone gets down to business for the last time in 2021.

We hope to bring everyone together during the welcoming party. Besides a wide spread of local food, we will also be holding some activities during the welcoming party. For instance, there will be live interviews with participating elites from the country and around the world which we trust will be a great sharing moment for everyone.

Part of the existence of Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival is to give back to the society. In 2018/2019, we have allocated some of the proceeds from our profits to sponsor “Kids Coloring Competition” and stationeries to less fortunate students in Taiping. We have also sponsored a musical group consisting of students who are saving to gain entry into music school and also Hua Lian High School via their school lion dance’s drum team. Part of the registration fees from 2018 had been paid to Bukit Larut/ Maxwell Hill Management for maintaining and upgrading our Bukit Larut/ Maxwell Hill. Besides we have sponsored athlete development in the likes of Soh Wai Ching (current world no.2 tower runner) and Daved Simpat (Malaysia no.1 ranked trail runner)
