Race Course

Outline of race course:

An overview map of the race course is provided below together with altitude profiles for the three distance categories. 

All three races will start and finish at Pekan Kiulu, with the start at 7 am on Sunday, 10th of December, 2017.

The shorter course, designed to be suitable for beginners with no previous experience in trail running, is 9.3 km long with an elevation gain and loss of 300m. The cutoff time of 4 hours is generous to ensure that everyone with a reasonable base fitness can complete this course.

The mid distance course is just over 15 km with 600m elevation gain and loss. It has two significant hills with a combination of dirt roads and trails.

The long course is 30 km with 3 significant hills, allowing even seasoned runners to be challenged and get a good training session in for longer races.

Apart from the start and finish, there are 3 aid stations along the routes with provision of water and potentially fruits/snacks.

Cutoff times have been set to enable us to manage the course. These are generally very generous, but 30k participants do need to keep a steady pace to stay within the cutoff time and finish before dark. An intermediate cut-off time for the 30k course has been set at W2 in addition to the final cutoff time. Cutoff times for the total race distances are tentatively set to:

Short course:       4 hours at Finish Line
Medium course:    6 hours at Finish Line
 Long course:       5 hours at W2, 11 hours at Finish Line

There are several stream crossings along the race course. Under normal weather conditions, this will not be challenging. If it should rain heavily during the night before and/or the morning of the race and the streams should become too risky to cross, competitors will be redirected to an alternative route for part of the course to avoid the stream crossings.

Race Information

The Race Series

The Super Kerbau Trail Run Series 2016/2017 is a roaming trail running series that will take runners through jungle, village trails and back roads in selected parts of Sabah on the island of Borneo. The Super Kerbau courses are designed for beginners and experienced trail runners alike, with a combination of trails and hills providing ample challenge for a fun day out.

The members behind Borneo Ultra Trails Sdn Bhd have been organizing races in Sabah since 1998 and have a long history of organizing some of the best races in Malaysia and South East Asia, including the legendary Sabah Adventure Challenge, TMBT Ultra Trail Marathon and the BUTM Ultra Trail Marathon which are big and tough races. The Super Kerbau race series is an ideal introductory to trail running to train for one of the longer courses of the bigger events.

Three races in the Super Kerbau Series of Races have been held till date, with the fourth and final of the present series planned for 10th December, 2017:

Race #1-Sunday, 18th September 2016, Kiulu, Tuaran District, Sabah

The race has three categories with distances in the order of 5-10 km, 15 km and 30 km, the race is designed to allow both beginners and experienced runners to take part and be challenged. Runners are advised to be medically fit and mentally prepared for the challenges ahead as runners are likely to be exposed to both hot, wet and muddy conditions, dependent on the weather on race day.

Race #4 (10th December, 2017)

The fourth and final event in the 2016/17 series was originally intended to be held in the interior district of Tambunan following on from Race #3, but due to a clash with another event, we have opted to move back to where it started in the Kiulu Valley. The exact race course will be finalized over the coming weekends and announced here once all permits are in place.

The race format will be maintained as stated above with the "short", "medium" and "long" courses, and the overall timing will also be maintained from previous events.

Outline of race course:

The race will start and finish at Pekan Kiulu along the river side (starting point for rafting).

Apart from the start and finish, there will be aid stations along the routes with provision of water and potentially fruits/snacks. There will be 1 aid station for the 9k course, 2 for the 15k course and 3 for the 30k course.

Cutoff times have been set to enable us to manage the course. These are generally very generous, but 30k participants do need to keep a steady pace to stay within the cutoff time and finish before dark. Cutoff times for the total race distances are tentatively set to:

short course: 4 hours
medium course: 6 hours
long course: 11 hours
