Nuang Jungle Marathon 2015: Racing Against Time & Self

Set in the dense tropical jungles of Hulu Langat, between Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, the Nuang Jungle Marathon will push avid trail runners to challenge their physical and mental limits.

On Sunday, 8 November 2015, trail runners are expected to keep to strict cut-off times and finish a full marathon in less than 14 hours, or half marathon in less than 10 hours, while overcoming several jungle trail obstacles.

The international endurance marathon will follow well-trodden routes as well as short stretches of new trails passing numerous stream and waterfalls. Runners will cross rocky tracks, root sections, red clay (mud) and dense jungle trails, alternating with clearer, distinguishable trails.

Organised by Asian Trail Explorers, the self-sufficient race includes a treacherous climb up Gunung Nuang, the second highest peak in Selangor and one of the main hiking and trail icons in local communities.
