“The terrain was challenging but the view of the mountain was beautiful. I was really touched by the friendly and genuine locals I met along the route. They cheered us on and gave us good spirits to keep going,” said Jungeun.
Jungeun shared photos of the TMBT trail on her instagram @totoolike which has over 30.8k followers. She was here as a Promenade Hotel sponsored runner.
“Many Koreans are active in trail running and I wish to tell my followers to consider joining in TMBT next time. They will know that it is easy to travel from Korea to Kota Kinabalu.” she added.
Jungeun finished TMBT 50km in 12 hours 24 minutes. She succeeded in completing TransJeju 111km in 27 hours 15 minutes.
