Welcome to The MEAL Run- Metro Endurance At the Lake!
In response to the growing appetite for locally held ultra races, we are serving you the MEAL, an exciting ultra endurance race around the lakes at Taman Metropolitan Kepong. We believe that this will appeal not only to your ultra running desires, but also take you to another level of challenge as well.
“Taman MetroPolitan Kepong”* Kuala Lumpur, is a former mine which has been flooded with water to form the lakes and a wonderful park. Also called Taman Layang Layang (“The Kite Park”) , it is one of the largest parks in Kuala Lumpur with a total size of 90 hectares.
So, knowing that you want to hang around quite a bit longer, MEAL has been created to cater for 6hrs, and 12hrs running categories.
Can you run 50k in 6 hrs, or 100k in 12 hrs? That’s the question, and you are the answers.
To spice up some fun and teamwork, we’ve also created a team category (2 runners in a team) for the 12 hrs run where the runners will alternate to run a loop each for 12 hours. Wouldn’t that be a lot of fun?
When the run starts at 6:30am, this park will still be filled with fresh cool air in the morning. Besides the beautiful lakes, you will also notice many exotic plant species which have been under many years of special care by the dedicated gardeners.
Runners will be running around the lakes at MetroPolitan Park in a loop course.
Each loop is about 3.8km with 30meter+ elevation gain. You’ll need to run as many loops as you can, in your chosen time category (i.e. 6hrs solo or 12hrs solo or 12 hrs team category).
In the team category, there will be 2 runners in a team. Each runner will run a loop of 3.8km, then the other runner in the team will run the next loop, then the first runner will run the following loop and so on. You can form your own team of 2 runners, or we can pair you up with another runner.
The winner of each time category, will be the runner or team that run the most number of loops.
Runner will need to check in at the “Distance Checkpoint” located at the start point of every loop. If the runner sign out, retire or the race cut off time occurred before the runner could complete his/her loop, the distance run in that uncompleted loop will not be included in the total number of loops and total distance covered.
