Penang Island is blessed with amazing numbers of trails for many decades. Blazed by the local inhabitants of Penang, these trails link up various heritage sites and points of interests all over the island. Starting from Youth Park and Botanical gardens, the trails spread out from the north to central and southern part of the Island, from Air Itam, Batu Ferringhi, to Teluk Bahang and Balik Pulau.
For decades, Penang people have taken to these trails during many of their weekends and public holidays. Some trails are easy and popular for the leisure weekend hikers, while others are rather hilly and less chartered which provide interesting challengers to serious climbers and trail runners.
Yet, for a long time, most of Penang trails have been a mystery for a lot of people in the Northern parts of Peninsula Malaysia, and Malaysia in general. Many Penang people have not been exposed to the many beauties and challenges of these trails.
Until NOW. Ultimate Trails of Penang is conceived with a passion for nature trails. Following the success of Penang Eco 100 in mainland Bukit Mertajam, where itâ€™s 2018 4th edition attracted about 1000 trails runners from 25 countries (200 international participants), Endurance Nature Sdn Bhd is bringing this new race to Penang Island. Given the booming local and global interest in trail running these days, it is anticipated that at least 1,000 runners will be signing up for this inaugural edition of Ultimate Trails of Penang (UToP).
