First launched in Aug 2015, Penang ECO 100 is the 1st ever ultra trail event in West Malaysia with 50km and 100km category. In the 2nd year of May 2016, an additional category of 100 miles was added. In the 3rd year of 2017, an additional category of 30km was added.

Held in Bukit Mertajam (Penang, Malaysia), the 30km, 50km and 100km categories start from the eco village of Sungai Lembu, taking runners through oil palm plantations, rubber plantations, pineapple plantations, several Malay kampungs Chinese new villages, and Indian temples, paddy fields, the challenging hills of Seraya, Mengkuang, and the by now iconic Tokun Hills. This race showcases the typical Malaysian geographical, social and cultural heritage where the runners will meet and see ordinary Malaysian people and wild lives, flora and fauna in the rural settings with a distinct small town feel. During the race, the runners will be sampling the local cuisines in the food and drinks provided at the aid stations along the course of the race.
