The physically demanding race covers 4 distances namely 84KM, 50KM, 25KM and 13KM which take runners through the pristine “virgin jungle reserves” (VJR) trails surrounding Taiping.
MALAYSIA MOUNTAIN TRAIL FESTIVAL VIRTUAL TRIAL RUN 001 @ Rising To the New Normal is created as a yardstick to see where everyone stands physically in preparation towards race day. It is created to also help runners remain competitive during these uncertain times created by the pandemic. You would have 7 days (28 May – 3 June 2021) to complete the challenge. We will take into account the “kilometer effort” for those of you who cannot integrate elevation gain in your run. Hence for any gain of 100m in elevation, we add 1KM to the distance of the route you cover.
