Kedah 50km Ultramarathon

Recommended Posts

Gunung Keriang Recreation Park is a lot more scenic than MR..Also it is not boring just to run one round of it than 5 loops in MR.

" It is located just 12 kilometers from the city of Alor Setar and is one of the major tourist attractions in Kedah.

The Gunung Keriang Recreation Park is known for its limestone rocks and caves. The Gua Keriang is one of the most popular and famous caves found in this park.

Gunung Keriang or Mount Keriang is an elephant shaped mountain located amidst flat paddy field of the state of Kedah. The park is a good place to go for rock climbing and trekking. Cave exploration is another major activity that one can embark upon in this fantastic nature park.

The mountain serves as a perfect spot for camping. Visitors come here for trekking and rock climbing in order to get a good view of the mountain summit. "

btw, is it a hilly terrain ??

Based on the picture, Gunung Keriang is a distinct outcrop in the middle of flat padi land..so I guess the terrain is not any worst than MR.

If you are going to do SBR for 21km, then it is just a week away to do the MR run...too close for comfort. To recover reasonably well from SBR, Kedah run is an obviuos choice.

have contacted the organiser & he says got a motel near the start point in Keriang which is good for us, so no need to wake up as early if we stay in Alor Setar.

Cost:

Large room which can accomodate 4ppl - RM55

Small room which can accomodate 2ppl - RM28

Don't expect any luxury hor... bathroom is not attached, which means shared bathroom.

So far, the following have been registered:

1. Balasing

2. Choonwei

3. Half timer

4. Fennel

5. IMD

Are u all ok with this motel? or wanna stay in Alor Setar, which costs about RM100-RM150?

Anyone else keen?

    • Maybe uncle shares quantity of runs for monthly, weekly and daily in 2021... on the Leaderboard "Challenge"...you shall start to see 10K+ participants joining for end-of-the-month.. you will notice... uncle is "catching" the top participants...mere HM and FM efforts to catch them...while almost 7,000 are "chasing" uncle... since uncle was previously ranked 3rd in April, so you will notice that for the month of May, uncle will be ranked negatively or postively from the absolute "3rd" position... Those that has sudden risen to the Top 10, look at the +1K or +308, uncle shall place these participants as "dubious", and will "monitor" and expect them if they will be still be competitive in May. They must be consistent, like uncle, otherwise, they are simply "flute" cases...meaning on non-run activities such as biking or boarding... This is a just silly "competitive" daily tasks that uncle enjoys, motivation to why HM and FM efforts are the best runs to remain in Top 10 always. Another one is uncle's calendar for May...besides FM Virtual Races...  now you can see... uncle must chong another 450KM from today to make the challenge "700KM" in May 21 a reality. You say you can do, show the results that you can do, complete and finish the "700KM" Monthly Challenge you can do...and sustain the "3rd Position" in April to be also "3rd Position" in May...because uncle will be disappointed to see "RED -ve" that is all...as motivational "push" factor 😃
    • that OSIM chair for SOH's use as gaming chair.. Well-Being Chair...SOH's for healthy lifestyle...gaming.  
    • what a photo that you managed to find after i mentioned on the gaming chair,.... hahaha
    • siong... it will take me a while to complete what u can complete in a month... hahah
    • uncle happened to come across this event...150KM or if closer to 160KM (100 miles)...     open till end of 2021...😄 same theme with Round Singapore or Around Singapore or Singapore Round Island.. As long as this is Virtual, Anytime Anyplace, realistically, can you even cover 10KM Challenge or more per day? uncle can. 50KM/160KM is 100 Miles, can you cover in 2 weeks? uncle can. 500KM, can you cover in 2 months? uncle can cover in 1 month. 2,021KM in 1 year? uncle can cover 6,000KM in 1 year. This is just Quantity in Distance Challenge lah...simply if you are registered in SCSM Virtual Club, simply participate in these weekly challenges and virtual races for free, you are motivated to be in the Leaderboard Ranking for free. like what uncle did in April with other 10K VR members who started to accummulate their distances and points...till the last day of the month.. Whether Team Challenge for 100 members or more to do 1680KM...you just need 3 Koh Papa <FOC> to achieve and accomplish...Bronze level. Aiya, uncle already rewarded self with this one... because this is achievable in 2021...and wish there was a Medal for 7,000KM. Now that will be a Real Challenge for uncle. That Challenge will be good enough for GOLD level for this event, right? 🤣
