The event

The event which took place between 2 – 5 November 2023 at Esplanade, Taiping, Perak, West Malaysia. Runners were taken through the pristine jungle trails which for the VK, 50KM and 100KM categories include an adventure into the Virgin Jungle Reserves in Taiping.

Runners tested with multiple elevation gains of 1000m for the VK, 350m for the 13KM, 1360m for the 25KM, 2960m for the 50KM and 5330m for the 100KM. The race gave every runner a chance of a lifetime to experience different trails around Taiping Lake Gardens and the iconic Maxwell Hill.

Part of the existence of The North Face® Malaysia Mountain Trail Festival is to give back to society. #LoseYourMindDiscoverYourSoul signifies projects that we believe would contribute to the community where the race is held. From mountain porters to less fortunate students, and from front liners to the champion amongst us in the likes of Soh Wai Ching (current world No.1 tower runner) and Daved Simpat (Malaysia’s No.2 ranked trail runner).

Part of the registration fees since 2018 had been paid to Bukit Larut/ Maxwell Hill Management for maintaining and upgrading our Bukit Larut/ Maxwell Hill and since the summer 2022, the organizer has moved upwards to develop Maxwell Basecamp in its effort to make Taiping a trail running and hiking destination.
