The Colourcoil Borneo TMBT 2016 Ultra Trail Marathon 100k & 50k categories are an extreme, outdoor ultra trail marathon catering for experienced, seasoned trail runners. The event will also feature a 12k & 28k Trail Run category.
Runners take on a a route selected by the organising team in a part of Sabah few get to experience in the foothills of South East Asia's highest Mountain, Mount Kinabalu.
The event takes runners from the native villages at the foothills on the western side of Mount Kinabalu and around the base of Mount Kinabalu towards the Southern side of the foothills of Mount Kinabalu and then on to the South-Eastern ridges of Mount Kinabalu to finish in the village of Kundasang.
The routes are beautiful but challenging and do give runners an opportunity to pass through remote, beautiful villages, across ancient hanging bridges and across raging rivers and through plantations and on village trails from the 1800's that used to be a part of the old buffalo trading routes linking villagers from Kota Belud to Bundu Tuhan.
