Run For It X returns to challenge runners to their limits by running the ultramarathon distance in Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam of 5km per loop. Taman Botani Negara Shah Alam (TBNSA) is an area of forests combined with plantations/botanical gardens that lies towards the north of Shah Alam city.
The event will start and finish at Pusat Galleri, this is the same venue for the Run For It X 2019. There will be checkpoints to record the number of loops. Participants must go through the timing mat once to be considered as completing the loop. There will be food and drinks provided throughout the course of the event, served at the start/finish location. Solid food will start to be served at 12.00 am on 15 August 2020.
For the first time, there will be an additional category being introduced – the 6 hours. This category is enjoying the same finishing entitlements as the 12 hours. It is a way to encourage more runners to try ultramarathon running. Participants will have to complete the minimum loops for the following stipulated time to be entitled to the finisher’s entitlements.
The winner is the one who completed the most number of loops within the cut-off time for either of the category.
Run For It X 2020 is a ‘candidate race’ in the Malaysian Ultra Runners Association (MURA). Each participant will receive points according to their achievement, and this will be added to their total points in the league as they participate in other MURA-certified ultramarathon events.
