The 9 Dragons Ultra Malaysia will be hosted by Race Base Asia and MMTF Consultant. It is also co-organized by the Forestry Department Kedah and Langkawi Development Authority (LADA). Originally scheduled for 29 - 31 October 2021, the race is now postponed to 28 – 30 October 2022 and will start and finish at Resort World Langkawi, an island resort in the state of Kedah, West Malaysia.

The 9 Dragons Ultra Malaysia is an international collaboration between Race Base Asia who is the principal organizer of The 9 Dragons Ultra in Hong Kong and MMTF Consultant who organizes the regionally famed Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival. 

The 9 Dragons Ultra Malaysia will take runners through 10KM, 25KM, 50KM and 50 Miles of pristine trails in Langkawi with elevation gain of 500m, 1200m, 2500m and 3700m (+)(-) respectively. The race will give every runner a chance of a lifetime to experience running through paddy fields, old and forgotten trails whilst covering most of the peaks in Langkawi.

The 9 Dragons Ultra Malaysia will have the race format similar to the principal’s race in Hong Kong. The ultimate challenge will be running the 50 Miles and 50KM races spread over 2 days. Runners can also opt to run the 50 Miles, 50KM, 25KM or 10KM only.  Subsequently, one can also do the 50 Miles or 50km race and thereafter the 25KM or the 10KM at a special rate for the shorter distance. Unlike the 50/50 & 25/10 challenge, these are considered separate races all together.

The 9 Dragons Ultra Malaysia is certified by International Trail Running Association (ITRA) and one of the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB) qualifying races. The 25KM, 50KM, 50 Miles and 50/50 race is accorded 1 point, 3 points, 4 points and 5 points respectively. The 9 Dragons Ultra Malaysia is also an Asia Trail Master 2023 Candidate Race.

We look forward to having each of you in Langkawi, Kedah in autumn 2022.
