Organizers

Race Concept

OBJECTIVE The objective of the race is to promote ultra running of super long distance on Malaysian road network system, based on the multiday single stage format. Such format has become the growing trend in recent years in other countries like the trail version in Tor des Geants (330km), Ultra Trail Gobi Race (400km), Grand Union Canal Run (237km), the road version of Across Taiwan 246k, Trans Korea (South to North) 622k, and the Trans Korea (West to East) 302k.

TOUR DE MALAYSIA RUN SERIES As part of the Tour de Malaysia Run series, which consists of Tour de Malaysia Run (around the whole of Peninsular Malaysia -2100km, and Trans Peninsular from Padang Besar to Johor Bahru- 880km), Coast to Coast 444km will take runners from Lumut on the west coast in the state of Perak, going eastward towards and crossing the Titiwangsa mountain range, passing through the beautiful Lake Kenyir area before arriving at Batu Buruk beach on the east coast state of Terengganu.

RACE EXPERIENCE REQUIRED This race does not aim to appeal to every ultra runner. This is a race for seasoned veteran ultra runners who crave for greater challenges. Rookie and newbie ultra runners should take this as one of their ultimate challenge after having completed at least a number of 100km races, preferably with a few more 100 miles or 200km+ races as well.

We therefore expect a basic pool of local seasoned ultra runners, and some experienced international runners to take part in this event. Runners are required to register for the race, and only those who are deemed qualified will be invited to join the race.

CATEGORIES There will be 3 categories in this event:

  1. C2C 444k - From Marina Island, Lumut to Batu Buruk Beach at Kuala Terengganu, with cutoff of 120 hours;
  2. LGM 238k - From Marina Island, Lumut to Gua Musang in Kelantan, with cutoff time of 60 hours.
  3. GMKT 206k - From Gua Musang in Kelantan to Kuala Terengganu in Terengganu, with cutoff time of 40 hrs

For the year of 2020, 10x C2C 444k will be the minimum number of runners required to proceed with the race organization. A maximum of 30 runners in total for 3 categories is set to ensure race quality and safety.

In the inaugural edition held in 2017, there were 11 runners in the C2C 444km category, and 1 runner in the LGM 238km category. 10 completed the C2C 444km within 120 hours cut off time, and the only runne in the LGM 238km completed the run too within cut off time of 64 hours.

In the 2nd edition of 2019, 6 out of 9 runners completed the race within 120 hours, whereas the Cut Off Time was set at 125 hours. As a result of this run, we have decided for 2020 edition, we are to decrease the cut off time of C2C 444km to 120 hours. LGM 238km will be adjusted to 60 hours for the Cut Off Time. GMKT 206km will be set 40 hrs.
