The 9 dragons malaysia 2021
The 9 Dragons Malaysia 2021 will be hosted by Race Base Asia and MMTF Consultant. It is also co-organized by the Forestry Department Kedah and Langkawi Development Authority (LADA). It will be held between 12th – 14th March 2021 at Langkawi, an island in the state of Kedah, West Malaysia.
The 9 Dragons Malaysia 2021 is an international collaboration between Race Base Asia who is the principal organizer of The 9 Dragons Ultra in Hong Kong and MMTF Consultant who organizes the regionally famed Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival, also known today as The North Face 100 Taiping, Malaysia.
The 9 Dragons Malaysia 2021 will take runners through 10KM, 25KM, 50KM and 50Miles of pristine trails in Langkawi with elevation gain of 500m, 940m, 2380m and 3640m (+)(-) respectively. The race will give every runner a chance of a lifetime to experience running through paddy fields and covering most of the peaks in Langkawi.
The 9 Dragons Malaysia 2021 will have the race format similar to the principal’s race in Hong Kong. The single race categories are 50Miles, 50KM, 25KM and 10KM. The ultimate challenge will be running the 50Miles and 50KM races spread over 2 days. Alternatively, runners can also choose to do a bundle challenge (50Miles/10KM, 25KM/10KM or 25KM/50KM) at a special rate for the shorter distance. Unlike the 50Miles/50KM Challenge, these are considered separate races all together.
The 9 Dragons Malaysia is certified by International Trail Running Association (ITRA) and is included as one of the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc (UTMB) qualifying race. The 25KM, 50KM, 50Miles and 50Miles/50KM race is accorded 1 point, 3 points, 4 points and 5 points respectively. The 9 Dragons Malaysia is also an Asia Trail Master 2021 Candidate Race.
We look forward to having each of you in Langkawi, Kedah in March 2021.
