Plataran X Trail 2018 in West Bali National Park is a genuine trail run with a mixture of forest paths, beach, hill slopes, and rainforest single trail. There will be very little tarmac road or concrete in the final race course. Elevation gain in West Bali NP is only moderate, but there are a few hills to be negotiated in the beginning of the course. These add spice to the race and will offer some breathtaking views of the coastal area. Brief, this is a runnable course in a very beautiful setting that will appeal to trail lovers of all levels. Please note that while the cut-off time is generous, hiking the whole course will not be feasible within the given timeframe.
