1st Cavinti Adventure Trail Marathon: Nov. 30, 2013

The first ever Cavinti Adventure Trail Marathon will be held on November 30, 2013 in the beautiful, centuries-old town of Cavinti, Laguna Province and starts at the Town Plaza, fronting the historic Our Lord Parish Church.

The town is hosting for the first time a trail run marathon with runners completing a scenic loop deep within forest trails and rough roads, woodlands, rivers, falls and a lake that will surely mesmerize runners completing their respective distances.

The course for the 42k runners will have moderate to steep rolling hills, several river crossings, one of which will lead to the Cavinti underground river. Mild to cool temperatures, expansive views of surrounding mountains, rolling hills, moderate elevation gains, a beautiful lake and wildflower meadows will be some of ย the highlights of this race.

The start will be at the Cavinti Town Plaza where the town mayor and the townsfolk of Cavinti will be on hand to send-off the runners in their adventure run while the finish will end at the Bumbungan Eco Park Falls where runners will be treated with a sumptuous lunch after they cross the finish line.

The organizers will just be setting up conveniently placed refilling stations in different points of the route. No cups will be provided to ensure an environmentally friendly race. So runners are encouraged to bring their own hydration bottles, Hydration back-packs, hydration belts or any hydration gear.

Cut Off Times will be:

42km/10hours cut-off,

21Km/ 5hours cut-off &

12km/ 3hours Cut-off times

More updates will follow soon and will be posted in this blog.

  1. Thanks for the discounts. I am coordinating this trail run with all of my running buddies.They will soon give their confirmation. Should you have more incentives to motivate, feel free to do so. How do we go to Cavinti from San Pablo City? Do you have any idea?

  2. Hi Sir,

    Me and my partner just newbie in running (just finish 2 21k run) just asking kung my qualification ba bago sumali d2?

    P.S if were lucky this will be our 1st trail run.


    • I envy runners who are just about to discover the joys of trail running. Wala pong qualifications, it’s like just any other road race that you can join in. Hope to see you there, Thessa! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Sir,
        1 more question, a proper trail shoes is a must be or an ordinary road shoes will do?


      • If trail conditions are perfect (no rains, mud) your road shoe will suffice, otherwise a trail shoe will offer better traction in such trail condition. I suggest investing on an “All-Terrain” shoe (New Balance) so you could use it on both road and trail.

        Btw, 21k Finishers Shirt will now be given.

    • Kat, yes it’s originally the 42k finishers who will get the finishers shirt. I’ll ask if 21k runners can get it too.

  3. Thanks alot Sir,
    we’re gonna invest a proper trail shoes for this, and expect us on the race.

    btw, we call ARC manila and they don’t have any details on when the registration will begin.
