Join Borneo Ultra Trail Marathon

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.

Course highlights

100 km Route
The 100 km route resembles a figure 8 with two loops each of 50 km, see figure below. The blue loop with the largest hills and the most technical section on the course will be completed first to ensure daylight on the technical sections. Competitors then return to the start/finish area, which also works as half-way station with access to the competitors half-way drop-bag and provision of the main halfway meal. This will be followed by the yellow loop, which is identical to the 50 km course. The first loop has the largest hills and is considered the harder part of the course on the section between W2 and CP1.

50 km Route
The 50 km route is an extension of the 30 km route with two extra loops. From the top of the ridgeline above W6, the 50km follows the ridgeline uphill rather than downhill before taking a gravel/dirt road along a separate ridgeline down to W7 located along the main river - and excellent spot for a quick refresher to cool off on a hot day. The course then follows trails along the river valley before rejoining the 30km course towards W8 and to W9. After W9, the 50 km course diverts from the 30 course to travel upriver along a trail with several river crossings before climbing steeply on a washed out dirt track to reach larger gravel road on top. This is followed over a short sealed road to reach CP2 (not marked on map) and then continues over dirt tracks and a short trail to reach W10 along the main Kiulu river. A short stretch on sealed road brings the 50k back to rejoin the 30k route to follow trails upriver to the finish line at Kiulu.

 30 km Route
After a short run through town, the 30 km route starts straight into one of three major hills - see profile below. The first stretch is on concrete road followed by a gravel road that has plenty of space for overtaking to allow participants to sort themselves out in terms of speed. Enjoy the views to Mount Kinabalu and surrounding valleys from the ridgeline A steep downhill on washed out dirt road, then gravel road leads to W6 across a stream which can be used to refresh and cool down if required before the second hill, which is steep uphill on a small trail through old rubber, forest and across cleared, planted areas. At the top, the course will follow the ridgeline back down to cross the main river valley and then follow a tributary upstream to W8. When leaving W8 the course runs briefly alongside the river - if overheated it is strongly recommended to take a quick breather to cool off before the last major hill on the course. This climbs steeply, initially on a washed out dirt track, then going into trails through forest and bamboo to follow a ridgeline before descending steeply on trail through mixed forest and old rubber plantations. At the bottom, the course follow an undulating gravel/dirt track to W9. The course then rejoins the main Kiulu river valley and follows mixed trails up-river to the finish line at Kiulu.

9 km Route
The 2019 9 km route starts at the riverside and runs through town to join the main road for just under 1 km before turning off onto a gravel road. A gradual climb on the gravel road is followed by a steep climb on a dirt road up a recently cleared hillside to the ridgeline. This is followed by a decent through young rubber plantations to a river crossing to reach a smaller trail that leads to a larger river crossing. Should the rivers be too high to cross safely, competitors will be redirected to an alternative route. After the second river crossing, the route follows small trails alongside padi fields and through a rubber plantation to reach CP1 at the crossing of the main sealed road. After short road and trail sections, the route joins the 100 km route through a mixture of forest, pineapple/rubber plantations and alongside padi fields to the finish line.
