MURA Forum: Surviving Multi-Stage Ultras in Amazon, Sahara & Taiwan
You think ultra marathon is just about running more than 42.195km? Make that 220km or 250km over 7 days! Plus running with backpack of 10-14kg carrying all your necessities like daily food, sleeping bags, running gears and etc.? AND doing it in the tropical forest of Amazon Jungle; OR doing it in the Sahara Desert of Morocco?
Will you survive? Can you survive? If that’s not enough of a challenge for you, how about running 558km in 8 consecutive days of ultra marathons (shortest 55.5km, longest 93km) from the north to the south of Taiwan Island?
Come and hear all about these from Mr. Ng Seow Kong, the survivor of these 3 multistage races over multiple terrains. It might just help you to survive your next ultra!!
