1113 Runners Enliven the Coast to Coast Night Trail Ultra 2019

KRETEK, DISKOMINFO - The Bantul Regency Government highly appreciates the organizing committee of the Coast to Coast Night Trail Ultra 2019, where this activity has a positive impact on our runners to hone physical resilience and instill a spirit of sportsmanship. The choice of Depok Beach in Parangtritis also had a positive impact on the world of tourism in Bantul Regency.

This was stated by the Head of Bantul Regency Cultural Service, Nugroho, Eko Setyanto, representing the Regent of Bantul on the Coast to Coast Night Trail Ultra 2019 event in the Depok Coast Area. The activity was held on Saturday-Sunday, February 16-17 2019 and participated in a number of 1113 runners, 80 of which were runners from 15 countries, divided into 13K, 25K, 50K and 70K categories.

COAST TO COAST NIGHT TRAIL ULTRA is an iconic running activity held in the southern part of Yogyakarta.

The Coast to Coast Night Trail Ultra (CTC) is held every February since 2015. The starting line starts from Depok Beach, Yogyakarta then follows Parangkusumo Beach, Parangtritis Beach, crosses the beautiful hills, Parangkusumo Gumuk pasir and finishes at the same point as the start line in Depok Beach with typical beach treats, namely grilled fish and dawet ice.

The Yogyakarta Trail Runners (TRY) designed Coast to Coast for the first time in February 2015 with the aim of bringing together runners from various regions to meet in an event entitled Gatherings Race. Gathering Race is a race that is managed by gathering or gathering.

The activity turned out to bring a competitive aura full of family. No fewer than 300 runners divided into 42K and 21K categories attended the 2015 CTC.

As for February 2016, CTC was developed into 13K, 25K and 50K categories. The total runners who participated in the second year's Gathering Race reached 531 runners.

In 2017 CTC was held again, to fulfill requests from CTC runners presenting 3 categories, namely 25K, 50K and 70K. By maintaining the 25K, 50K and additional 70K categories, runners will pass the tourist icons in the southern part of Yogyakarta such as Cave Langse, Gua Cerme, Panggang Tourism Forest Area, Gatot Subroto Climbing or better known by participants namely km34 climb and the difficult forgotten by CTC participants, Gumuk Pasir Parangkusumo, here the participants were faced with the challenge of running in a sandbank that was quite hot and drained of energy, of course, 4 kilometers to the finish line.

CTC is like a gathering, after going through many climbs and derivatives, also after you have successfully passed Gumuk Pasir Parangkusumo which is the only mini desert in Southeast Asia, runners will enjoy grilled fish along with other runners after crossing the finish line. Extraordinary thing, after being physically drained, the culinary aroma along the coast is able to restore the runners' energy.

Actually running on the Coast to Coast Night Trail Ultra 2019 program, not only physical test and mental challenges, but will also give a family impression that is hard to forget. For this reason, in 2019 we added another category, that is 13 K (mw)
