26th Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon 2012

The Climbathon first started in 1987; the 21 km Climbathon race course has been using the mountain summit trail from Kinabalu Park headquarters to the peak of the Mount Kinabalu and back down again to Kinabalu Park headquarters.
 
The Mt. Kinabalu International Climbathon race course will be altered to start from Kinabalu Park headquarters, going half way up Mt. Kinabalu to Layang-Layang station (2760.3 m above sea level), then down to Mesilau Nature Resort before ending at Kundasang town to cater for even more participation.
 
The new 23 km course is longer by 2 km from the previous race course and goes through forest, villages and a golf course in the district of Kundasang. The race will end at the small vegetable town of Kundasang with participants being welcomed by villagers and locals dressed in colorful traditional costumes.
 
Dubbed as “The World’s Toughest Mountain Race”, this race is a true challenge to human endurance.
