Eco X-Cape Adventure Run 2014


Adventure Race

The new Eco X-Cape to be held over Saturday 31st May - Sunday 1st June at Gua Tempurung, Gopeng, Perak. This event has been advertised as a muddy affair for the whole family. They have for categories on offer for anybody who are interested to sign up.  The event will be held over two days and will feature two disciplines. Enter just one discipline or enter both! Prizes will be given for individual races and for overall victory across both disciplines.

These races are non-technical, there's no rock climbing / abseiling, high ropes or navigation skills required, meaning you don't have to be a seasoned adventure racer to take part. You can expect to be climbing over obstacles, crawling through mud, crossing rivers, scrambling up / down hills and crawling through caves.

Don't be fooled though, their X-Treme categories are just that… X-TREME! These courses have been designed to physically test even the best athletes. As an X-Treme race there will be cut-off times along the way for those who don't make it. If you are not a regular racer then the X-treme category is not for you, the X-Press category will still have the same level of challenge just over a shorter distance.

Saturday 31st May: Adventure Run.
It wouldn't be Eco-X without an adventure element. Follow the off-road trails laid for you, and tackle the obstacles in your way, cross rivers and lakes, crawl through mud, and you might even find your self in the darkness!
