ABOUT THE RACE

The 8th annual SUPERACE ULTRA MARATHON Taiwan Station is here!

We’ve arranged for new challenges in this year’s course! SUPERACE will lead runners through the Jinshuiying Historic Trail, built during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan, through the Central Mountain Range to the Eastern coast, pass the Xuhai, and Provincial Highway 26. Runners will climb to peaks of more than 1,450 meters and descend to riverbeds at sea level; along the way participants will be greeted by the mountains and the sea as they pass wet tropical forests and gravel coasts. One might even hear the songs of the Paiwan people. The diverse terrain will test both the limits of your stamina and will; it will also test your understanding of this land that is Taiwan!

This year, to allow more participants to enjoy and experience a SUPERACE ULTRA MARATHON, we have introduced ‘119K, 2-Stages Assisted Race Group’ and ‘55K Trail Race Group’ in addition to our regular ‘119K 2-Stages Elite Race Group’.

Participants in the ‘119K, 2-Stages Assisted Group’ will have the luxury  to only need to carry mandatory race equipment for a single day, this will allow those who are interested in the ‘119K, 2-Stages Elite Race’ to experience a less demanding 3 day race, and gain a better understanding of the equipment involved and the physical condition required for a SUPERACE Ultra Marathon. The event organizers will provide transport services for the rest of equipment.

In addition to the two types of multi-day races, we also provide a "55K Trail Race Group". Through a 55K single day trail race, runners will get a taste of a SUPERACE Ultra Marathon, and build the courage to sign up for a 3 day race in the future.

Come with SUPERACE in February 2020 to test your limits and discover the beauty of Formosa with your own two feet.

Day 1 - 55K

You stand at the start, awaiting to face the first challenge of the race: crossing the Central Mountain Range! First, step into Dahan Forest Trail and let the Jinshuiying Historic Trail guide your path. Since being built during Japanese occupation, this is the most used and oldest path that crosses the Central Mountain Range. Aside from your own breath, can you hear the footsteps of those who came before you ringing through the mountains and forest as you run? Take a closer look and you’ll see the hidden marks of history. The wet tropical climate has resulted in some unique vegetation and hidden animals lurking in each corner, awaiting your arrival.

Day 2 - 40K

Follow the highway and before you know it, you’re in a coast filled with pebbles. Xuhai, if you’re lucky, is a place where you’ll catch a glimpse of the legendary view: “the sunrise and the ocean”. The yellow sun slowly rises from the surface of the Pacific Ocean. The golden rays penetrate the tranquility of te blue morning as you blink away the sleep from your eyes. “Wow!” You gasp in awe at the majesty of nature. The sun rises, shining its light on the small fishing village in the Southeastern corner of Taiwan. The cresting waves on the left seem to increase in intensity; on your right is a 5-story tall cliff with traces of stubborn vegetation and displays of spiral patterns formed by pressure on volcanic lava from eruptions more than a million years ago.

Day 3 - 24K

The white sands of Fengchuisha abruptly come into view. The area contains coral reef topography that combines red earth and sand from geographical layers that have been corroded over long periods and result in the white sandy view today. Continue along to Longpan Park. The grass filled marina and limestone platforms, gaze out at the blue skies and Pacific Ocean. Take one last look at the ocean! At the next fork in the road is an unassuming trail that sets you on the last part of your journey. Cut through this trail to the south end of Kenting and arrive at the eastern coast. Head north towards the sound of people, cars, and the familiar smell of Kenting. Soon after you’ll reach the finish line……
