Soleus Cross Country Challenge 2: July 9, 2017

With the spiraling cost of race entry fees these days, one has to literally shop around for cheap races with main considerations being… value for money, right scheduling and a well organized race. But for me, other important aspects of a must-have in races are the scenery and camaraderie, all of which are present in trail running races.

Me and a lot of others have found to like the smaller, intimate races more and you pay a lot less in registration fees that you would in running those mega races in the metro. I like the laid back thing and that for me is definitely more fun!

One trail race this coming July 9, 2017 is the 2nd SOLEUS Cross Country Challenge which will have 21k and 12k distances at very reasonable fees. I was able to run the inaugural race last year and based on my experience, i can thoroughly recommend this great trail run. Starting from the Mt. Sinai Ten Commandments wall in Pintong Bukawe, San Mateo, Rizal, the hilly route travels virtually along mountain passes, river crossings, small villages, pristine greenery— usually bathed in glorious sunshine!

If you’re up for spectacular scenery and varied terrain, then this trail race will not disappoint! The race’s impressive start and finish on top of a mountain over-looking the vast Sierras will definitely add to the wow factor!

Here are the details of the race:
