On registration, please provide a URL link to your qualifying result (VTS results page, ITRA results page, or similar). If you plan to complete a qualifying race between now and race day, you must send us your result by 30 days prior to the race date.

Failure to provide evidence of a qualifying past performance will result in refusal of entry.

*Please note we will assess your submitted performance for its level of difficulty and the organiser’s decision is final. A GPX track that is not an official race is not sufficient for qualification.

Course description

This is a seriously tough ultra marathon that covers every type of terrain the area has to offer. 

You begin at Topas Ecolodge and take a loop that has been updated from 2022. This new section is harder than before, hence your earlier start time. From Topas Ecolodge you will cross a beautiful valley to the Red Dao minority village of Ban Lech. You then descend to the deep, stunning valley of Ban Kim before ascending to Ban Sai and CP 101. 

The following trail will lead you down to the bottom of a valley where you cross the river at Ta Thang Dam. You must then conquer the long, steep trail up to Sin Chai and CP 102. From here, you will follow the trail through the rice fields to Thanh Phu. cross the Muong Bo river, then it is time for another big uphill back to Topas Ecolodge and CP 103. 

After this loop, you will join the 70km course where you will experience sunrise running on through the deep valley filled with rice terraces. 

After crossing the river the running is less challenging for a while, but at the end of the valley there is a seriously hard and long climb up through rice fields to CP3. You will then continue to climb on a beautiful trail to the new highest point on the course at around 2,300m. In good weather you will have stunning panoramic views of the mountains here.
