Start & Finish Location: Cherengin Hills Convention & Spa resort – Janda Baik (1 hr drive from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) – Google map link how to get to Start Cherengin Hill Resort
50 km – (48km) 3410m+ elevation gain 3421 elevation loss. Expect a very tough hilly course to push your heart to the limit as this will not be a walk in the park and will need a good training plan before the event to finish the 50km within the 13 hour cut-off. The course will follow the 20km route until the river crossing and then a 25km new section following quiet gorgeous valley with dirt track and single track with almost 100% pristine rain forest with monkey leaping from trees, sound of very loud crickets and just absolute ideal running conditions to put you in that zone you have long lived for until Lentang turn around. You will come back on the same route to the river crossing (bridge now) so try to cheer on the others coming in the opposite direction. Back at the river crossing bridge checkpoint you will continue on the same 24k route with a new dirt track we found and an additional beautiful loop at the plantation section before your last check point. A lot has gone into this course and we trust you will appreciate every bit of it. Yes there are plenty of hills, but most are short steep hills that you can overcome mentally if you train with a positive mind with a cando attitude. No pain no gain as they say. (47k dirt tracks and 2k cement road)
