Publicity poster on Mt. Kinabalu Climbaton
Want bragging rights when you meet friends for coffee? Then take part in this year' s Mt Kinabalu Climbathon in Sabah. No, there's no need to bring any climbing gear. Just your running shorts and shoes will do.
The 2008 champion for running up AND down Mt Kinabalu clocked two hours 44 mins 47 sec
I took about 8 hours just to reach the top but these guys are running up and down in less than 3 hours. Amazing!
FYI, Mt Kinabalu is about 4000 m high, and the total distance for the race is 21 km.
If you decide to quit the race halfway, it's OK. At least the view from the top is spectacular.
