Salomon X-Trail Run 2013 Now Set at Hamilo Coast, Batangas

After my debacle in March of last year to finish the Salomon 24k Trail Run at the Tagaytay Highlands due to severe pain in my Plantar, i am now looking forward to joining this race again in a few weeks, this time at Hamilo Coast in Nasugbu, Batangas. The pain of my heel was pretty bad that it didn’t allow me to make another step without wincing in pain at about the half-way mark. Tough luck!

It was a little upsetting of not being able to finish but i always embrace this set- back as something you work on to get stronger and better so this is something to look forward to, kind of a score to settle.

But this will not be an easy one. Any run which starts from the Hamilo Coast and dubs itself a mountain run will surely scale the mountain trails of Mt. Palay-palay enroute to the famous Pico De Loro. I’m not sure though if this will be part of the route. We shall know the exact path after we do a test run this coming Saturday.

The annual Salomon X-trail Run will be held on March 23, 2013. This year’s race will be held in the beautiful Hamilo Coast with the back drop of the Pico De Loro mountains in Nasugbu, Batangas City. New trail routes will be created exclusively for the event, with the Salomon team projecting to attract more trail running enthusiasts and trail runners hailing from different levels.

Moreover, runners will surely enjoy the breath-taking view around Hamilo Coast. The trail sections overlooking the cove are steep and technical, with sharp and loose rocks, as well as roots and thick foliage. The view also boasts of hills, mountains, valleys, and lush greeneries – an overall perfect setting for a one-of-a-kind adventure.
