The race starts and finishes from the event HQ at Nanga Bush Camp, with three out and back legs.
- Leg 1 (red) is 25 km with 1225m elevation gain (aid station at the half-way point)
- Leg 2 (blue) is 33 km with 657m elevation gain (aid station at Nanga Brook Campground, approx 7.5k & 25k into the leg)
- Leg 3 (green) is 22 km with 654m elevation gain (no aid station)
The 100mi event covers each leg twice, as detailed below:
Runners may have two drop bags, labelled “Leg One” and “Nanga Brook Campground” (or “Leg Two”). You can also leave a drop bag / clothing etc at the Race HQ and Nanga Bush Camp, as runners pass through this when transitioning between legs 1, 2 and 3.
Support crew can assist runners at Nanga Bush Camp and Nanga Brook Campground. There is no access to Legs 1 and 3 for support crew. No assistance should be provided to runners outside of the official aid station locations – penalty is DQ.
