The seventh edition of SAC takes one on a one-day multi-sport adventure race, showcasing Sarawak’s spectacular rainforests, rivers, trails and sites as well as some great scenery and fascinating tribal culture. This year’s race starts at Pueh Village in Sematan, located 115 km west of Kuching. Themed Pueh Challenge, SAC 2023 highlights the spectacular mountain and coastal scenery as well as the communities of Sematan and Pueh in the Lundu District. With Mount Pueh providing the backdrop, the race will take in the communities, streams and trails near Sematan and Pueh villages.
