WHAT IS ARCHIPELAGO RUN?
Is one of the programs within the Bali-Kei Archipelago Festival (www.balikei.com), invented by The Sophie’s Choice (TSC) which is a festival that marries “Music” and “Sports” industries as one package to help the Eastern region of Indonesia to build and elevate their tourism industry. TSC has chosen the Island of Bali and Kei Islands in Southeast Maluku Regency as the first locations to implement the program, and named it Bali-Kei Archipelago Festival (BKAF) - a registered name.

LONG DISTANCE RUN
The "Long Distance Run" in Bali and Kei Islands is a one package deal, 84K in total. The first leg of the race, 42K, is in Bali. The top 50 finishers in Bali (25 Male and 25 Female) are the only ones eligible to run for the final leg, 42K, on the Kei Islands, to win the big prizes. The top 50 finishers will fly to the Kei Islands, all expenses paid, by Bali-Kei Archipelago Festival productions.
SHORT DISTANCE RUN
It is part of the entire Archipelago Run (ARCHIRUN) with segments of 5K, 10K, 15K and to 20K. This type of race is independent of each other, in Bali and in Kei. If you want to compete in both Bali and Kei, you must do separate registration for each location.
