Kailas Malaysia and Wind Runners orchestrated an invigorating hiking clinic at Bukit Lagong, setting the stage for the much-anticipated Bukit Lagong Challenge 2024. The event, held on 13 November 2023, not only prepared participants for the upcoming challenge but also celebrated the shared love for outdoor adventure.

Lee Teck Wai, Manager of Wind Runners, shared his excitement about the collaboration, stating, “Partnering with Kailas Malaysia allowed us to elevate outdoor experiences. The clinic was a shared journey of pushing boundaries and embracing the thrill of the great outdoors.”

David Lau, Operations Director from Kailas Malaysia, highlighted the role of quality gear: “Our gear is more than equipment; it’s an enabler of adventure. Seeing it in action on the trails of Bukit Lagong was a testament to the power of reliable outdoor gear.”

Nestled in Selangor, the Bukit Lagong Forest Reserve served as the perfect backdrop. Boasting over 100 species of birds and mammals, the reserve features the popular Bukit Lagong Trail, offering a tranquil escape for hikers, runners, and walkers.

The event concluded with a thrilling lucky draw, offering prizes such as the Kailas Lightweight Ultra Running Cap, Nitecore Malaysia HA11 Ultra Lightweight Dual Beam AA Headlamp, DEVER Energy Gel Sports Towels, and two exclusive 12km slots for the Bukit Lagong Challenge.
