About This Event

Off the beaten path…

The Bario Trail Run 2018 takes runners through the picturesque villages, pristine forests, rice fields and past many long houses of the Kelabit people who populate the highlands. Criss-crossing through the ranges, the trail takes you through peaks and valleys, as well as a few crystal clear streams. Take a break mid-run to soak in the views as you reach two look out points (Agan Hill and Ipeng Hill). You will be rewarded with the breathtaking views of the Borneo tropical rainforest.

The trail is 21km long, it begins and ends in Bario, located 1,000m above sea level. These trails comprise of buffalo trails as well as hunting trails and are also used by the local indigenous Kelabit communities to travel from village to village.

This route will be enjoyed by those who love a bit of a challenge, a bit of mud, a test of strength, caters for and suitable for all levels of trail runners.
