I participated, in another year for Xterra trail run. well, it’s quite challenging as they are introducing new route, different route for each categories for this year.
I was a bit bored when 11km last year trail run, require you to run 2 loops of 5.5km route. This year, it’s the whole new route. They included in about 30-40% Tarmac route (which I hate, because am wearing my vibram fivefingers), and have to go through few tunnels.
Let the pictures speak for itself. Overall, am happy to return to another international event in Malaysia (without having those mass runners when bottleneck happened when you are running with another 30K of people in the same route).
This year trail run finisher. Same as last year :p
11km flag off around 7.15am. I givr myself timeline of 2 hours for this run. I was more than 2 hours last year LOL
