If any of the top six players fail to finish on any day (DNF), their individual results cannot be ranked as a team finish, and the top six each day must be recalculated. (Exception: This is not the case for forced suspension by the chief referee due to safety reasons.)

2022 SUPERACE ALISHAN PHOTO RECAP

 
Fenrui Historic Trail to Ruitai Historic Trail
Two important historic trade trails which were carved by years of enterprising aboriginals carrying bamboo, mushrooms, and coal to trade with the outside world. Runners will pass by Fenchihu lake and enter the Fenrui Historic trail and immediately be engulfed by a famous Alishan scene of bamboo forest drowning in a cloud of fog. You will feel as if you are in a Chinese martial arts film. Flying through the forest trail with bamboo trees on both sides, navigating over fallen wooden logs, while listening to the crackle of leaves down under; on to the next destination.
 
 
Dadongshan Trail
Traveling north, we reach the top of Dadongshan at 1976 meters above sea. With 360 views of the area, runners will be encouraged to stop for a breather and take in the scenery. From here, the trail can take explorers further up towards Jade Mountain, and is also highly rated as the best spot to watch the sunrise in Taiwan. Maybe you can come back to experience that another day, as the race must go on.
 
 
Bat Cave and Swallow’s Cliff
While passing through the Qingnianling Trail, the race will take runners through a bat cave and swallow’s cliff, both famous locales within Alishan. Playing an important part of the ecology of Alishan, the bats and swallows manage the mountain’s insect population while providing natural fertilizers to the many plants in the area. Runners will pass through these caves and marvel at the stalactites and stalagmites caused by millenniums of natural erosion. 
 
 
Shueisheliao Station
On the second day, runners will begin by running up the Mt. Sitianwang trail towards Shueisheliao station. This station tells the origin story of Taiwan’s first rubber business. Runners will pass through the Shueisheliao Station to Fenqihu on a 180-degree horseshoe curve which will take you towards higher elevation as we continue the race.
Once past Sheisheliao station, a strenuous climb from 400m to 1400m awaits as runners will pass through another forest. Enter the resting place of the Chinese Fir and Japanese Cedar trees, spot the Formosa conifer, endemic to Taiwan, and if lucky, the flicker and glow of the resting firefly.
 
 
Mihu Trail
Onwards to the next campsite at Alishan Township, runners will need to navigate through the Mihu Trail. A funny play on words, Mihu means to be lost. Runners will indeed feel lost in a green world of fireflies, butterflies, and ancient trees like the bishop tree. Bird watchers can spot the colorful Taiwan barbet and the Taiwan Yuhina, both endemic to Taiwan. Now rest, refuel, and get ready for the next day of challenges.
 
 
 
Dinghudi Trail
Up the strenuous Dinghudi trail towards what was once ocean bedrock. Having spent millennia underwater, this ancient land was once a lake in the ocean. Runners will be rewarded with a unique experience to touch shoulders with fossilized sea creatures while being thousands of meters above land. 
 
 
 
 
Leyeshan 
At elevation of 1696 meters above sea, Leyeshan is the highest point of Dingshizuo. The aboriginal Cou people call this the LaLauya mountains, in Chinese, this play on words means to enjoy the trail. Heading south, back towards Shizao, to complete the loop. 
 
 
Shizhao
The race begins in Shizhao, a spot famous to the aboriginal Cou tribe. Legend has it that Hamo, the God that created the Cou tribe, once appeared on a flat tabletop rock here, hence the name Shizhao, which in mandarin translates to rock table. Runners will pass beautiful manicured Alishan tea plantations, with the broad mountainous horizon in site, runners can take in the views of the Cou tribe. Emerging from lower elevation tropical forest, to the subtropical and finally climbing to the more temperate regions above 1800M as runners make their way to Mt. Pili.

What is a multi-days Ultra Marathon?

SUPERACE Ultra Marathon Stage Race is a concept created by extreme terrain explorer Kevin Lin who has participated in extreme marathons over many years. In an event totaling more than 100 km over 3 days and 2 nights, participants must carry their own food and water throughout the journey and make choices based on speed and stamina. The race is a challenge against wild terrain, animals, drinking water, weather, time, depleting stamina, and speed where difficult decisions must be made. Participants can also experience local tourism culture.

 

What is Self-carry and Self-supply?

Throughout the course, participants must carry their own food (prepare a minimum of 7 meals, we suggest buying dried rice packets), water, sleeping bags, change of clothes, and the event’s mandatory equipment. Backpacks have an average weight of 6-8 kg (including water). The event organizer carefully inspects each participant’s equipment before each race and if violations are found, participants must purchase additional equipment locally. The event only provides camp sites, drinking water, hot water, and tents to participants at CP stations (approximately 1 every 9~12 km). Participants who violate rules will be punished with additional time or disqualification.

 

What Types of Athletes Have Participated in SUPERACE Ultra Marathon Stage Race in the Past?

Participants of previous ultra marathon events mostly have full-time jobs and hail from various industries. SUPERACE does not place occupational restrictions or other requirements on race participants; this event is an international ultra marathon stage race and each race contains elite atheletes from various countries (China, Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia, Europe, and the U.S.) with 80% male and 20% female.


How Many Days are Required for Participating in Alishan Station?

Participants need to arrive one day before the race, to join the report, equipment inspection, and pre-race briefing session. and leave at any time after the race has concluded. The whole race will lasts 3 days and 2 nights, and conclued around noon in day-3, after the awards and ceremony. Therefore there are total 4 days to join this event.

 

What does the overnight campsite provide? Can I take a shower?

SUPERACE ultra marathon compares and refers to the international regular multi-day race system. Depending on the local camp conditions, organizer will set up tents for the players or provide indoor space for overnight use, and provide drinking water and hot water for meals, support and assistance from professional medical staff and volunteers. In principle, the camp does not provide bathing services.

Due to the climate condition in Alishan has a large temperature difference between day and night, indoor space as a campsite will be arranged.
