THE THRILL OF NORTHERN TRAILS
Run on top and alongside the longest continuous limestone range in Malaysia. With the challenging terrain and ever-changing climate, experience the wonderful and mesmerizing view of Perlis National Park while making the mark of a trailblazer. It is not all about running. It will be a discovery of the enchanted and wonderful Perlis. We will be providing all the assistance needed to make your participating experience be the ‘run-cation’ you well deserved.

FOR THE FIRST TIME
For the first time we will be introducing the SUPERB SENIOR CATEGORY for those age 50 years and above. Giving the recognition they deserved in maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. To promote trail running from young age, a special JUNIOR CATEGORY is also introduced to groom more youngsters to enjoy the sport and outdoor lifestyle.

JOIN THE RUN AND JOIN THE FESTIVAL
Nakawan Ultra is not all about running the trails. Complete the distance and NAKAWAN FEAST FIESTA will be awaiting you. A spread of local food and delicacies prepared by the locals at the event village. For the deserving 50km ultra runners, the NAKAWAN JUNGLE FEST DINNER awaits you in the evening. A get-together music and feast gathering honouring the year long quest to be an ultra-runner.

Looking for lodging? Why not camp with us at the designated NAKAWAN ULTRA CAMP SITE. Let’s the spirit of running camaraderie began even before the flag-off. (We will still provide assistance for other accommodation arrangements).
