Safety is our primary concern. The original event date of 14-15 March 2020 sadly was not possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we were forced to postpone the event just 1 week before the event date. This was an extremely unfortunate and expensive eventuality. We tried several subsequent event dates in 2020 and 2021, but again the Covid-19 pandemic prevented from this being possible, with no mass participation events being allowed in Malaysia at this time. The latest event date of 29-30 October 2022 has now been set, to give as much time as possible for the pandemic recovery.
All individual and team relay registrations, together with 2020 race entitlements (eg. Medal and T-shirt), will be automatically deferred to the rescheduled event date.
Running shoes, bicycles and helmets are not provided by the organiser and is the responsibility of the participant.
Participants age and category entitlement in the Individual Classic and Individual Short races is calculated based on their age as of 31st December 2022. PowerKids and PowerTeens age categories are calculated based on their age on Race Day.
Any age category changes (older ages as a result of the postponed event) will be automatically made by the organiser, at no additional cost to the participant.
The race kit includes an event t-shirt, bag, race bib, timing chip (Powerman and PowerTeen categories only). Powerman Classic and Short finisher’s will also receive a finisher t-shirt.
