What makes KAEM Ultra unique?
What does supported mean?
Participants run with day packs that can carry up to approximately 3 kg, and should contain food and energy supplies for the daily run, survival equipment and a minimum of 1.5L water, either in bottles or a bladder. Participants get goodie bags at registration. All other requirements for the 5 day event (up to a maximum weight of 15kg) are to be packed in the goodie bags which are transported from Start to Camp 1, from Camp to Camp, and to the Finish. Upon arrival at Camp after the stage run each day, participants get their goodie bags and each morning 15 minutes prior to the start of the next stage, bags are to be checked in for transport to the next overnight camp.
