This will be an epic fastest known time (FKT) 21KMs trail run challenge.

While Mount Marami is only about 633 MASL (meters above sea level), it is still a challenging trail – to the unprepared! 🙂

Yes. To a field of seasoned athletes – mountaineers and runners and ultraruners, this is chicken. But to the you-know-who occasional/recreational joiners, this could prove very challenging.

Anyways, with my plantar pain and occasional backache on this race week – I’m having doubts of making it to the starting line. But with God’s grace, I just might be there and finish this distance.

Tips for the unprepared:

  • bring extra hydration for your own use before the aid stations
  • bring extra small bites for your own use before the aid stations
  • dont waste time on full stop – keep walking
  • bring a trekking pole
  • wear the lightest gear you have
  • tag along with a buddy (to push and pull each other)

Crossing my fingers. 🙂
