Description

First launched in Aug 2015, Penang Eco 100 is the 1st ever ultra trail event in West Malaysia with 50km and 100km category.  In the 2nd year of May 2016, an additional category of 100 miles was added.  

Held in Bukit Mertajam (Penang, Malaysia), the 50km and 100km categories start from the eco village of Sungai Lembu, taking runners through oil palm plantations, rubber plantations, pineapple plantations, several Malay kampungs Chinese new villages, and Indian temples, paddy fields, the challenging hills of Seraya, Mengkuang, and the by now iconic Tokun Hills. This race showcases the typical Malaysian geographical, social and cultural heritage where the runners will meet and see ordinary Malaysian people and wild lives, flora and fauna in the rural settings with a distinct small town feel. During the race, the runners will be sampling the local cuisines in the food and drinks provided at the aid stations along the course of the race. 

This is designed to be an international race, with the objectives of attracting foreign and out of state runners to visit Bukit Mertajam.  The 2016 edition has attracted close to 100 foreign participants from 20 countries.

Penang Eco 100 is part of the Asia Trail Master series, accorded the status of Super Trail of Asia Trail Master.  All the race categories of 50km, 100km and 100 miles earns qualifying points for Ultra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB) and Ultra Trail Mount Fuji (UTMF) as well for 2016.  We are committed to ensure that Penang Eco 100 will continue to be part of Asia Trail Master, and to be a qualifying race for future editions of UTMB.
