Sabah Adventure Challenge 2013
Date: 29 ~ 31 March 2013 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
Category: 150km Adventure (running and cycling) and 80km ultra runners
Whoo.. SAC is back. This time, ultra runners category will have some improvement. More distance, more days of running, same registration fee and same lodging - Mesilau Resort (..memang hangit habis)
I think those who took part on previous event, surely will recommend this as the best Malaysia ultra event. My RACUN 2012.
We are proud to announce the launch of registrations for Sabah Adventure Challenge 2013, the oldest established multi day adventure race in South East Asia for the 14th year as well as for the ultra trail marathon on the 29th-31st March 2013. The event will see a return to the very popular Mesilau Resort as well as an increase in the distance to be covered by the ultra trail marathon runners to 80k and over three days instead of the old 60k and 2 days only. This is down to requests for runners to finish together with the adventure racers as well as a prize giving ceremony together on the Sunday, 31st March 2012 and we have agreed to your requests.
There is no real change to the concept or entry fee package. Your accomodations are included from the 28th March-31st March for all ultra runners and adventure racers at Mesilau Resort and then again in Kota Kinabalu at Hotel Mega D'Aru from the 31st March-1st April 2012.
The big change as you will note is the new entry fees for the 2013 event.
We have managed to REDUCE the costs associated with the adventure race down to USD$1000 for a duo instead of the old price of USD$1500 and have managed to maintain the entry fees for the ultra as we have done so for the last 3 years despite increased fuel, logistics and transfer costs so its good value I think in general give pretty much everything is covered for a 4 day period in Sabah.
Registrations are limited due to the number of limited accomodations available at Mesilau to:
25 adventure racing teams
100 ultra runners
Registration for SAC 2013 opens at 12:00pm, 4th July 2012 and will close once each category is filled.
Accomodations are on a first come first basis in the dormitories and chalets and you may request to room with friends who are competing in the event.
Please note the departure time from Kota Kinabalu to Mesilau on the Thursday,30th March 2013 is at 2:00pm from Hotel Mega D'Aru to Mesilau Resort. Registration opens from 12:00pm-1:30pm at Mega D'Aru so please do ensure you are able to meet the departure time to board the shuttle buses to take you on the 2 hour journey to Mesilau.
Thank you and have a great year ahead in racing and adventures, where ever it may be.
