Salomon XTrail Run 2012 - Official Launch

 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.

The inaugural event was held on the 6th December 2009 at Taman Lembah Kiara, which attracted about 900 participants. The second edition was in 2011, attracted a total of 1200 runners. This year we are happy to announce a total of 2,100 participants who have registered for the event, surpassing our target of 2,000 runners. This clearly proves that more runners are enjoying trail running and wanting to be part of Salomon X-Trail Run and willing to participate in this exciting yet challenging platform.

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.
