Your Race Guide To First Edition of Borneo Trail Classic


With the first edition of the Borneo Trail Classic (BTC) getting underway in the next few hours, excitement is building up at Redeems Centre, Kampung Apar in Bau, Kuching. In a Facebook Live session held a few days ago, the Race Director mentioned that there would be water crossings, single and double tracks, and leeches. Yes, leeches!

If you have not had the chance to go through the detailed race guide, here is a quick summary for you.


Moving Around Kuching

From the airport, if you choose to do some sightseeing around Kuching, you may easily rent cars from the airport. Expect daily rental rates from RM150 for a Perodua Axia. If you come in a group and split the costs, this rental would be of good value. It would also come in handy when you go to Redeems Centre, about 30km away from the airport.
