Genting Trailblazer is ON!

The registration is open!


This year, there are 2 different kinds of races;

a) International Cross Country (30 October 2010)
b) Genting Trailblazer (31 October 2010)

The International Cross Country is a new format, primarily a trail run, a maximum of 12k running alone, close to nature and with no obstacles as you challenge yourself in a race across the rugged terrain of one of the world’s oldest rainforests. Interesting, but with a tag of RM98/pax it is quite far-fetched (at least for me), but go here if you want to register. 


For Genting Trailblazer, register here
It is back with the annual pulse-pounding combination of exciting adventure racing and intense trail running has now been bolstered with an emphasis on the importance of rainforest conservation. This year’s race promotes the theme of 'team spirit'. The idea is to impart valuable lessons in self-confidence and teamwork, as well as provide the chance to be closer to nature. 

Highlighting and reinforcing the adage ‘unity is strength’, be prepared to navigate 14km of mean, muddy terrain, daunting obstacles and grueling challenges while surrounded by the lush, rugged beauty of the world's oldest rainforest together with your partner. 
Let team spirit carry you through this epic run as you and your partner strive towards victory! (chewah!)

At press time, only Adventure category is listed, with a fee of RM168/team (run and light breakfast of usually free flow of bananas, watermelons, meehun, hard boiled eggs, strawberries etc). Perhaps there will be only one category this year. O yes, you and your partner need not be beyond 90 years of combined age.

Prerequisites  are;

a) either a really tough trail shoes, or old shoes you want to trash and chuck them out. 
b) your own bodywash and shampoo
c) ziplock bags for important items
d) hand gloves
e) hydration bag/belt/etc to keep yourself hydrated. With endless climbs and descends, water is gold!
f) yourselves

The Cross Country, being a trail run, will be accessible to newbies. The Genting Trailblazer is also accessible to newbies, who yearns for better adrenalin rush! Tepuk dada, tanya selera :).

GKLs, RBUs, GBSs, etc needs to pool for team partners? Spool around and we'll send lots of teams :D. It is a long way to go before end of October, but this is a hot race. Remember, you have been warned!
