It started when we were asked by our Alumni organization at NCCU to put together a hike or a run – something to get the city folk outdoors and enjoy the beauty of mother nature. We talked to our friends the Taiwan Beast Runners
about it and after a few meetings decided to put our resources together and organize a trail race worthy of the Runivore and Taiwan Beast Runner name. And thus – Explore Your Backyard – was born.
Join the 12km race or the 9km run/hike in the beautiful hills of Maokong. Breath in the fresh air and enjoy stunning views of Taipei from a different angle.
The route is selected by Taiwan Beast Runners – an elite trail runners organization in Taipei. But don’t worry, it was curated so that anyone in good health won’t have trouble finishing it. You can choose the more challenging 12km race or the more easy-going 9km run/hike. Finisher medals await you at the finish line, yummy lunch box will be served to all and prizes will be awarded to top finishers in both categories.
