About Thailand by UTMB®:

Thailand by UTMB® is based around the highest mountain in Thailand, Doi Inthanon, also known as the roof of Thailand. The route showcases the local biodiversity and the forest changes with the gradual climb elevation from 400 to 2,100 meters above sea level. Doi Inthanon is one of the most popular national parks in Thailand. Located in the north-west of the country, it allows runners to get off the beaten track and experience a true adventure; crossing rivers, chasing hidden waterfalls, passing royal burial grounds, and learning about the local people. Thailand by UTMB® has 5 race distances: 100 Miles, 120 KM, 80 KM, 25KM and 10KM and is one of the leading trail running events in Asia.

Rules of Virtual Race

To become a Finisher, you must run 80 km with 4,000 meters of elevation gain or the equivalent of 120 Kilometer-effort. Kilometer-effort means that for any gain of 100m in elevation, one kilometer is added to the distance of the route. The Virtual Race must be completed by walking/running (average speed of 17 km/h and max speed of 22 km/h max) and outdoors.
The Virtual Race can be completed over several runs or in one go.


The ranking is calculated on the overall timing on the basis of the GPX tracks provided between the first run (start) and the last run (finish). Thus, runners who choose to complete the Virtual Race in one single run will be ahead of those who have completed the it in several runs.
In the event of a tie, the activity time (= time in motion) will be taken into consideration.


Every runner who completes the Thailand by UTMB® Virtual Challenge will be entered into a special draw to gain entry into race of their choice at Thailand by UTMB® 2021, accommodation during their visit and transfers from Chiang Mai airport.
