Sumatera Jungle Run (SJR) is a national and international cross country race that will be held on April 11, 2020. It is not just a simple running race, the event is inspired by Riau Trainrun Race which once held on November 2016, to encourage runners to protect the forest and prevent deforestation.
SJR carry a strong message that a beautiful and undisturbed forest can be a blessing. Its combination of sport and travel we all know as sport tourism. The place is located in the heart of Sumatra Island, precisely in the Sultan Syarif Hasyim Forest Park (Tahura SSH) Minas, Riau. This is a conservation area which is about 25 km, or less than an hour, from Pekanbaru that offers visitors a complete package of forests, rivers, lakes, oil palm plantations, including the natural sounds of Serindit birds, and various route tracks.
The icon of SJR is a Sumatran elephant (Elephas maximus sumatranus), a protected species of native elephant of Sumatra under the supervision of the organizational body. There are dozens of male and female elephants can be found there.
With temperature between 30-32 degrees celsius, the topography goes uphill and downhill, from 35 meters to 100 meters above sea level which make this competition suitable to anyone either it is 5K, 10K or 21K categories. The race is fun but becomes challenging because of the time constrain for each category are given.
To ensure the safety and runner's comfort, as an experienced organiser, we provided marshalls, medic teams, sweepers and water stations along the race course including near the lake at the dam of Takuana River.
The race use a timing system and provide cash prizes and medals for winners. 21K finisher will also get a finisher tee. Online certificates will also be issued and can be downloaded later on.
