Thailand Ultramarathon 2K16 is a physically demanding mountain ultra, in the beautiful jungles and forest of north west Thailand.
If you are a runner or a supporter, you will love this race. It is in the mountains of Mae Hong Son province, very close to the Burmese border. This sparsely populated area is off the tourist track, and the route for the races heads into some very isolated areas.
This is a trail run with a difference; you will pass through several remote hill tribe villages, see awe-inspiring limestone cliffs, and the entrance to a cathedral-like river cave. There are also 700 year old burial mounds right next to the track. It’s in the magnificent rural back country of north west Thailand. The course has been designed to maximise time spent under the jungle canopy, on ancient hill tribe trails, and on disused dirt roads.
This is Thailand’s first mountain ultramarathon, and it’s tough, so be prepared for some big hill climbs and steep descents. There are two distances, 50 or 100km.
The TU50 is a beauty, the TU100 is a beast!
