Perhentian Island Challenge 2012 is scheduled from 12th – 14th October 2012, in Perhentian Island, Terengganu, Malaysia. 


 Over the past year we have been guilty of drumming down the event, making it too easy. This year we are going back to our original intentions to make it an endurance event to 'Discover your Limits'.


We shall have categories for:

  • International Section : Elite Men & Elite Women (RM 200)
  • International Section : Novice Men & Novice Women (RM 150)
  • Malaysian Section : Elite Men & Elite Women (RM 150)
  • Malaysian Section : Novice Men & Novice Women (RM 100)
  • Kampung Section : Novice Men

We shall be using trails on the big and small islands and to get from one island to the other we will either swim or inflatable tubes. Where we have a swimming section then a buoyancy aid will be mandatory.


All finishers will be given a T-shirt for dinner and 50 medals are given out to the 1st 50 runners of every category who reach the finishing line. Winners in each category will be receiving a small trophy, medal, prize money and sponsored prizes worth in total of more than RM50, 000! Besides, all winners can be viewed on the Winners List.

Perhentian Island Challenge is a yearly event. Thus, we changed our route and distance every year in order to create mysterious and surprise to all the participants. All the details will be reveal during the briefing in the island before race day. Therefore, it will just fulfilled our slogan "Discover your limit!"
You may refer back to previous year event for details and to understand what kind of race we are organizing.

We arelimiting the participants to 500 pax, of which 100 are reserved for the elite category. If we have fewer than 20 entrants for a category that category will be cancelled.


Due to high demand. We are now open a new category for international section which is International Novice Men and Novice Women.
