About this event

SUPERACE - A life-changing multiday ultra marathon.

This is a self-supporting and self-supplying multiday trail race of more than 100 kilometers. Varied terrain includes paths, trails and off-road. Participants need to carry all the food, sleep and survival equipment, and it will take three days to complete.

SUPERACE founder, Taiwanese ultra marathon explorer, Kevin Lin has promoted multi-day ultra marathon system in Taiwan since 2013.

We believe it’s not just a long-distance running event,

It is a life-changing adventure that is stacked up by traveling, experiencing the world, and exploring youself.

Not only an qualifying race of both UTMB & ITRA points, we are also honored to be recognized by the certification of "The 4 Deserts Ultramarathon Series" event unit, becoming the only event in Taiwan to be selected as an affiliate race of the "RacingThePlanet" brand system.

2023, 10th anniversary of SUPERACE Ultramarathon in Taiwan. A brand new 106 KM route, condensing the high-altitude mountains, famous hiking trails and forest. Across asphalt roads, mountain trails, wooden planks, stone stairs, unpaved industrial roads, etc.The altitude spans three forest climates: subtropical, warm zone and temperate zone. The contestants will run through the tea gardens and hills, passing by the bamboo forest and fir trees, in the misty clouds and the morning sun. With the famous "Five Wonders of Alishan": railway, forest, sea of clouds, sunrise and sunset as the background, they will make a full view of beautiful Taiwan.

You don't necessarily need to be good at running, but you must have the enthusiasm and courage to explore the different possibilities of your life.
