Sierra Trail Adventure Race- October 16, 2016: A Sneak Peek

In the mountains of Tanay, one place holds a special allure to those who have ran its trails and crossed its rivers…the rugged scenery of Sitio Maysawa and Laiban. If you have ran any of PIMCO’s Natures Trail Discovery Run (NTDR) trail series a few years ago, you just might have passed some of its rocky terrain, steep uphills and an abundance of streams and rivers that greets you endlessly along its course.

This October 16, 2016, the inaugural trail race of Pinoy Trails.com and Rundezvous will hold the 1st SIERRA TRAIL ADVENTURE RACE (STAR) 2016 in Tanay, Rizal which will have an 8k, 12k, an 18k- solo, and an 18k 2-man buddy run. The race will start and end at the Ten Cents To Heaven Resort, Sitio Mayagay, Cuyambay, Tanay, Rizal.

Two weeks ago, The Pinoy Trails Team made an ocular visit on these trails as we last did during another familiarization run with trail buddies Jun and Franc. The Maysawa trails are beautiful but jagged, rocky on some parts, wooded on the inner portions  following shallow but crystal clear rivers plus a couple of different ridges through the woods. It throws in a couple of relentless uphills and descents. The terrain on the end part, after reaching Brgy Laiban is a mix of woodlands, creeks, open spaces and the occasional cultivated field.

The Maysawa-Laiban trails are a must place to run in Tanay with ascents and descents that your hearts will beat in excitement. It will be both hard and pleasant at this time of the year but with the onset of the wet season, don’t let the rains deter you!
