Xterra Malaysia 2013

Logo from my 2009 Blog Entry
Got a note from a friend that Xterra Malaysia will be back in 2013. Having being involved heavily as the organiser for the first Xterra Malaysia in 2009 in Kuantan, this offroad triathlon has it's own following and excitement. 
From the Race Organiser. You See it here, first.
Looked like 2013 will start to see the return of many races that many loves. Stay tuned to this blog for more info as the registration to be announced. The event already slotted to happen on April 28, 2013 in Xterra website.
Spot MALAYSIA. The website/link, unfortunately, is not working yet.
I am in touch with the organiser of Xterra Malaysia and was told that the weekend will be filled with activities that includes trail running as well. So, there is something for everyone (that does not swim or mountain bike). Stay tuned at this blog for more updates!

Thank you notes for the successful event in 2009

  2. I was there too Stupe! In 2009. My husband was working with one of the sponsors (courier company) and entah macamana he was asked to join a relay team. He goes for mtb only on weekends so I'm glad he survived his part, with an additional 8km detour (salah jalan?) with a few other cyclists hehe..
    But the swimmer in his team was fast. A teenager, alamak I lupa nama dia. Quite known as a strong swimmer.

    1. Yes. I believe there will be about 8 to 10km of on the road before cycling in the trails nearby.

      I will ask the organisers.
