Salomon X-Trail Run 2012 was officially launched at the World Of Sports eCurve on 19 September 2012. The organizer announced that there are total 2,100 runners have registered for the event.
Some of the guests and media
This event offers participants a challenging competition where runners are to run on an trail. Thus, this requires runners to go through muddy, wet grass, grime, sweat and finally, some fresh air, when they complete the challenge. This is also an opportunity for participants to enjoy an Outdoor Sports event, they are doing their part in promoting Green running. These platforms serve as alternatives to running on the road.
Universiti Putra Malaysia has been chosen as the venue as we believe the country like atmosphere surrounding UPM will be a pleasant one for runners to enjoy their run. The runners will be flagged off at Stadium UPM & will run an approximately 1km on tar roads before tackling the trail to cover around 8km throughout the UPM farm & completing the remaining 1km tar roads to finish the race back again at Stadium UPM. Throughout the route, participants will be able to enjoy a light trail route with green surroundings & very minimal obstacle of muddy terrains.

SALOMON’s objective in organizing this Run is to reward our loyal Salomon customers with an outdoor event to test their trail run capabilities compared to on-road running. With this new trend, we see more runners are opting for a challenge and on-road running.
Salomon X-Trail Run is predominantly running Green.
