MALAYSIA MOUNTAIN TRAIL FESTIVAL (MMTF) is co-organized by MMTF Consultant, Jabatan Perhutanan Negeri Perak and Larut Matang Hash House. MMTF is not just any other race. It is a race created by passion for runners by runners. The race takes place in the small historical town of Taiping, Malaysia every December since 2018.

MMTF is certified by International Trail Running Association (ITRA) and International Skyrunning Federation (ISF). It is also one of the qualifying races for Ultra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB) besides being an Asia Trail Master (ATM) point race.

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.

By participating in MALAYSIA MOUNTAIN TRAIL FESTIVAL VIRTUAL TRIAL RUN 001 @ Rising To the New Normal, you stand the chance to check not only where you stand against other runners, but most importantly you are able to check your physical fitness towards race day which we promise will be a bigger and grandeur “year-end trail party” than before.

All registered runners for MALAYSIA MOUNTAIN TRAIL FESTIVAL 2021 enters for free (FOC). If you are not a registered runner for MALAYSIA MOUNTAIN TRAIL FESTIVAL 2021, a small admin fee will be charged (50KM runner will be charged RM20, whilst every 13KM runner will be charged RM10).
