Mantin Ultra Trail Run 2018 – In Spotlight

Editor’s Note

Wow! This invitation to a new event with a new trail route came to me on the 11th hour, and as luck would have it, my schedule is blank on that weekend. Despite the short notice, I agreed to join Mantin Ultra Trail Run 2018 (MUTR 2018) because exploring the natural landscape of Mantin is in my bucket list, plus I love running in the wilderness.


As for the ultra distance, I was assured beforehand by my mate Toto of KOW KOW SPORT that the cut-off time for 50km is very doable with only one massive climb halfway . So, let’s see what exciting adventures awaits me in the trails of Mantin…
