Sarawak Adventure Challenge 2020 - The Jade Cave

Description

We Are Back!

The Sarawak Adventure Challenge is back; bigger and better with even more race categories. For 2020, the fourth edition continues as a one-day multi-sport adventure race showcasing some of the best rainforests, rivers, trails and (for this year) one of the most beautiful caves of Western Borneo.


The theme for this year’s challenge is “The Jade Cave”, once again combining the excitement and demands of XC MTB and trail running with a spectacular cave. The setting is the village of Lobang Batu, 88 km from Kuching, near Tebakang, Serian. The race will start and finish at SMK Lobang Batu, with the race highlighting the spectacular scenery of the Tebakang area, the local Bidayuh communities and the vibrant history of the area.

In response to requests for more variety in the format, the SAC 2020 has expanded to 14 race categories, including new categories for Sprint Duathlon, Sprint MTB and Veteran categories. Due to the time constraint, there will be no early bird pricing this year and the Registration Cut-Off Date is 13th September 2020.

Sign Up & Be Thrilled!

Addressing Covid-19 Concerns: In view of the on-going Covid-19 pandemic and the SOP imposed by Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) and to ensure the safety of all participants, a number of measures will be implemented. Participation will be restricted to Malaysians or Malaysian residents with a limit of 250 participants. The race registration will adhere to the standard SDMC Covid-19 SOP such as temperature checks, sanitizing hands, social distancing, isolation areas etc. To ensure social distancing during the race, the start times will be staggered with limited numbers for each wave. There will also be strict access control to the registration area / start / finish and transition areas. All participants in all categories will be monitored using an ELECTRONIC TIMING SYSTEM to allow for accurate race timing (in spite of the staggered start regime). There will be no Pre-Race Welcome Dinner and Briefing for the Duathlon categories this year. In the unlikely event this event is cancelled, it will be rescheduled and postponed to a later date.


For 2020, registration fees will be significantly reduced to encourage increased domestic participation. For example, the Duathlon Team registration fee will be reduced from RM 420 to RM 210 in 2020. With the increase in categories, the prizes for the top placing will also be reduced and the available money spread over a wider range of categories.
