MESASTILA PEAKS CHALLENGE (65 KM, 100 KM)
Aiming to challenge the inner spirit and the physical stamina, MesaStila Peaks Challenge is a unique event in the heart of Java Island. A technical, tough and at times intimidating trail race with steep hills, jungle trails and bridge crossings. Escape for a day onto unused trails, some overgrown by jungle, small village streets, along rice paddies and over up to five magical mountains. Participants have a choice of five distances:
MesaStila 5 Peaks Challenge (100km)
MesaStila 4 Peaks Challenge (65km)
MesaStila Marathon (42km)
MesaStila Half Marathon (21km)
MesaStila Run (13km)
The 5 Peaks on the 100 km course are:
Mount Andong (1726m)
Mount Merbabu (3145m)
Mount Merapi (2930m)
Mount Telomoyo (1894m)
Mount Gilipetung (1400m)
The MesaStila 4 Peaks Challenge crosses Andong, Merbabu, Telomoyo and Gilipetung. The MesaStila Marathon does Andong, Telomoyo and Gilipetung. Finishers on these 3 race distances score points for the Asia Trail Master ranking. Those who succeed to complete the 100km also score 1 point for their Grandmaster Quest.
The MesaStila Peaks Challenge is also Indonesia's SuperTrail. This means there are 50 bonus points for all finishers on the 100km and 65km race distances.
