The route a lot of elevation right ? Do you recommend me to run FM if I did not finish any FM before and my furthest distance is 21k , and yea 6day of holiday after the race , thinking if I should do a HM or FM , what the cut off trimming ?

the route is damn tough. It is really uphill all the way till the U-turn, then downhill also all the way. I was worried my hamstring would snap if I insisted to do FM, so I u-turned at HM.

Oh, you get to wear a helmet to run at this race too. hehe. in case of rock falling off from above. Sth to make you run faster hehe :lolu:

Great great , thanks guy for the info , think I can book the air ticket this weekend and start planning

Oh also , is it recommended to book a hotel before going over ? Or I can just walk in to any hotel and say I'm staying for 1 night ?

I would suggest you to book the hotel at Hualien. It is a small town and only 1 "better" hotel near the train station. I booked both places (Taipei too) before I came there, so not sure about Taipei. But Hualien I suggest to book early.

Hello everyone.

Some quick question on the on-line registration for Taiwan races.

1. What's the address and phone number to enter? It seems like they make you enter the Taiwan information, even though you are a foreigner.

2. How to make payment? vis pay-pal?

Thanks.

Did you register with CTRRA (Chinese Taipei Road Running Association)? You need to register as a member before you could participate in any of the running events. The website is www.sportsnet.org.tw. After you have registered on line, you need to send a copy of yr passport to them. Once you receive the membership approval, you will be able to register and participate in their running events. Pls note that Taroko Gorge Marathon registration will open on Monday 9am, 3rd Sep'12.

Yes. I have received their confirmation via email about the membership. However, as i try to enter the fields, they prompt for a Taiwan address and phone number. Wondering how I should go around it? Thanks.

Hello, thanks.

One more question, what about payment? is it by Pay pal, or have to pay at their locations (e.g. local 7-Elevens)..

I had the same problem with my credit card. Then used my running kaki's card, same problem existed. When he used his other card (Citibank i think), got through. We have managed to sign up. Hope that you have signed up as well bcos the HM and FM slots have now been fully taken. Registration is probably closed.

Registration (both FM 2600 & HM 7500 places) was full within four hours! Crazy!!

Some runners booked their air ticket to Taiwan very early, ending up can't get a slot due to busy computer time from 9am to 1pm(closed), made payment got big problem, paid twice....All FM and HM slots fully filled up within 4 hours! VERY HOT and POP marathon in Taiwan.

My Taiwan friend told me that if you registered first and pay at 7-11, the response will be better than paying by plastic.

No choice....do Taroko in 2013!
