P/S : Registration closing date has been extended to 12apr2012


The objective of this event is to promote the vast/network of hiking trails in Penang domestically and internationally and to foster and encourage hiking as a popular and healthy outdoor activity. Hiking Challenge endeavours to encapsulate the objective. 


This annual Hiking Challenge shall be divided into 2 separate categories:
1) Competitive Hike; and
2) Fun Hike.

Category 1 - Competitive Hike
Under this category, the route shall provide a challenge for the participants to contest with each other their ability to surmount, overcome and navigate through various difficult types of terrains and natural obstacles along the route.
Category 1 shall be divided into:
- Men and Women International Open (20 -49 years) 
- Veteran Men and Women (50 years and above)
- Junior Boys and Girls (13-19 years)

Category 2 - Fun Hike
This category is less challenging than the Competitive Hike and will normally be easily traversed by social or casual hikers, including the uninitiated. It is open to families and individuals above the age of 13.

The routes for the Competitive Hike and the Fun Hike respectively shall differ every year from the previous ones to make the Hiking Challenge more interesting and an opportunity to explore new routes among the vast hiking trails in Penang. Depending on the location where the event is to be held, there may be limits to the number of participants for the Competitive Hike so as to preserve as much as possible the habitat, terrain and natural environment of the trails. Qualifying times shall be set for the categories for the award of certificates and medals and to qualify for lucky draws for those participants who completed the event within the time set.
