My MK's Trip Afterthoughts!

Since Dream n Kops have written a very good n detailed trip of our just completed training n recce trip there... so i decided not to bore everyone with a similar FR!

"The Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon has made its reputation as "The World's Toughest Mountain Race" is a true challenge to the spirit of human endurance. The race involves running up and down Mt. Kinabalu (4095.2 m)- Malaysia's First World Heritage Site, a total distance of 21 KM for both Men and Women category." ... http://www.sabahtourism.com/climbathon06/html/introduction.html

The above caption is highlighted in the introduction at its website! After this recce trip in which i climbed up and back down the MK twice in 2 days.. onli NOW .. i can fully appreciate n understand why it is branded as " The World's Toughest Mountain Race"!

Here is a sample photographical illustrations of the terrains and conditions of the Race Route so that u can judge for yourself on the difficulties n dangers of running down such route! Hmm... advise me on how to run down the MK without breaking all my bones within the time limits for this " DareDevils Sky Runners" Race !!!
