4th Kalaw Trail Run 2019 - 51k Ultra Run
Time & Location
About The Event
The KTR Ultra 51K is a challenging course with a total elevation of 2075m and it's highest point at 1607m. Whilst not long by international ultra distance standards, the course is certainly tough enough to test most trail runners. With hydration, nutrition and water stations every 10-12km it is it is ideal for the "first time" ultra marathon trail runner also.
Starting and finishing at the Kalaw Heritage Hotel the course leaves the town after a gentle 4km climb along back streets before entering the hills and trails. Passing through 10 villages, several monasteries, crossing streams and rice fields, and taking you through some amazingly fertile farming lands, the trail enters back into Kalaw after a quick run trough a pine forest and down to the railway station before returning up the road to the finish at the Kalaw Heritage Hotel.
