OCR Up North: BDB Extreme Jitra 2018

Head up north this June for the BDB Extreme Jitra 2018 set to take place on 30th June 2018. Look forward to an exciting 8km course with 10 obstacles across Darulaman Park, Jitra. 

The top five male and female elite participants stand a chance to win cash prizes alongside their finisher medal and T-shirt. Entry fees for elite category is RM128 (not inclusive of admin fees)

For those looking for a more chill and fun experience with their family and friends, there is the open category for public where they will receive a finisher medal and shirt upon completion of the race. This is the third time this event is being held in Kedah, sealing its status as returning OCR favourite for those up North.

When interviewed by the Star newspaper, 2016 participant Josephine Lau, 32, shared that the BDB Extreme Jitra gave her and her friends the opportunity to explore what Kedah has to offer. The Penangnite said, “This has been a great ‘run-cation’ for us as we took this road trip from Penang to Jitra. I am glad that this race was held in Kedah as a lot of great races were held in places too far for us,”

If you need a reason to visit Kedah other than a duty-free island, well, here you go! Entry for general participants starts at RM68 for students and RM88 for those non-students and above 18 (fees not including admin fees) Save more if you sign up as a team of five and hurry!

Registration closes on 15 June so gather up your brothers, sisters and fellow OCR junkies and start planning a memorable trip up north! To find out what you are in for, check out last year's event!
