About

EVENT POSTPONED TO 2021

Merapoh Trail running is given a new breath of life by the introduction of Merapoh Rainforest Trail (MRT) in 2020. Since 2015, people of Merapoh have welcome trail runners from all over the world to its beautiful caves and trail paths. Our main objective top reserve the National Heritage and Save Merapoh Caves. We have discovered more than 150 caves in Merapoh and we believe there could be more than 200 caves that had not been discovered yet.These national heritages are under threats of destruction from the planned big-scale cement production project and logging activities in Merapoh. As the event grows, we also have seen spin-offs in the development to the local business and economy to Merapoh through eco-tourism. MRT will offer various categories for your pleasure in trail running; 25km, 50km, 100km and 100miles categories. Participants will run through the beautiful trail of Merapoh that includes running inside and through some of the iconic caves and wading through refreshing rivers.This race is a fast course with less technical sections and caters for beginner in trail running. Cut-off time 40 hours for 100miles, 22 hours for 100km, 12hours for 50km and a generous 7 hours for 25km category.
