What better way to savor the unique natural and cultural splendor of North Borneo than through trail running? Borneo Ultra Trails organize two of Borneo’s largest and most international trail runs – the Borneo Ultra-Trail® Marathon (BUTM) and “The Most Beautiful Thing” (TMBT) Ultra-Trail® Marathon.

“Completing the TMBT or BUTM is not only a personal achievement, but will also reward you with a lasting impression of a beautiful part of Sabah”The Borneo Ultra-Trail® Marathon is an extreme, outdoor Ultra-Trail® marathon that will take runners through a combination of natural jungle settings and cultural landscapes via trails, dirt tracks and back-roads in the Kiulu Valley North of Kota Kinabalu.

There will be sweeping views over the surrounding ridges and valleys as well as to the majestic Mount Kinabalu to the north-east of the area. Kiulu is known as the Valley of Hanging Bridges and the Adventure Capital of Sabah.For 2020, 5 race categories will be available, ranging from a 9 km “family” run suitable for newcomers and kids accompanied by parents to get a taste of real trail running over a varied course to the inaugural Borneo 100 miler course with about 8,000 m elevation gain. The full range of courses include: 100 miles, 106 km, 52 km, 30 km and 9 km. All courses except the 9 km course are ITRA rated and qualifiers for UTMB. The 9 km course on the Sunday can also be entered as an additional “add-on” race for the 30 km and 50 km courses taking place on Saturday.

Further course and race details are available on the event web site.
