Run beyond boundaries at Salomon X-Trail Run Pilipinas 2018
Five decades since its inception, Salomon continues to elevate outdoor experiences as the world’s leading trail running brand. But beyond its steadfast dedication to superior product innovation, Salomon has likewise come to embrace its role as a pillar of outdoor athleticism. In its bid to push the boundaries of trail running, Salomon is more than thrilled to announce the return of the highly-anticipated Salomon X-Trail Run this July 22, 2018 at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
Conceived in 2008 as an annual event organized by Salomon throughout Southeast Asia, the Salomon X-Trail Run is held in countries including Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Philippines. Highly regarded by the trail running community for its exceptional and technical trail routes, Salomon X-Trail Run continues to attract an increasing number of participants among runners, fitness junkies, and outdoor enthusiasts.
In the past, Salomon X-Trail Run Pilipinas has been held in various premiere venues throughout the country and has since gained notoriety for consistently mounting the most challenging yet most-attended trail running events in local trail running history. Now on its 7th year, the Salomon X-Trail Run Pilipinas is back to challenge hardcore trail runners and outdoor adventurers with another grueling and unforgettable trail running experience.
Following last year’s widely successful turnout of close to 1,200 participants, this year’s event seeks to attract 1,500 racers from all over the country as it unveils another adrenaline-pumping race across the lush and vigorous forest trails of the Subic Freeport Zone. Similar to past Salomon X-Trail races, this year’s trail running competition will consist of two race categories – the Trail Run category for beginners with 6km and 12km distances and the more technical Mountain Run designed for experienced runners with its 24km and 32km distances.
Transcending the boundaries of human capability is a philosophy which ultimately drives the core of Salomon. As such, participants of this year’s Salomon X-Trail Run can expect no less from the trail running authority as it once again simulates the challenging ascents of Skyrunning races.
Particularly, the Mountain Run which is positioned as the most challenging category of the race will feature a heady combination of terrains such as asphalt and rocky trails to rivers, sandy tracks, and steep technical ascents – all of which are designed to test the stamina of the most tenacious runner.
The Mountain Run participants will receive a race bib, timing chip, Salomon X-Trail technical jersey, Salomon Microfiber towel, post-race meal, raffle coupon & products from sponsors. Only those who finish within the cut-off time will receive a Finisher’s medal for this category.
Path to progress
An advocate of inclusivity, Salomon X-Trail Run also opens its doors to avid runners with basic to no trail running experience with its 6km and 12km Trail Run category. Though slightly less demanding, the Trail Run category equally aims to inspire runners to test the limits of their ability by coming up with a technical terrain that will surely prove taxing for its participants. Trail Run participants will receive a race bib, timing chip, Salomon X-Trail technical jersey, post-race meal, raffle coupon & products from sponsors.
Given the demanding nature of these distances, participants of the 32km and 24KM Mountain Run must adhere to the prescribed medical certificate before registration and mandatory gear before the race which includes, a headlamp, a whistle, a hydration pack/belt with at least 500mL of water. Those with incomplete mandatory gear will not be allowed to participate in the race.
Throughout the event, there will be specific areas and control points located in varying locations within the course to ensure that the participants finish the race within the official time alongside motivational posters and signages to encourage racers. Moreover, the Salomon X-Trail Run will be a Green Race. A pioneer advocacy championed by the Salomon X-Trail Run since its first series back in 2010, Salomon’s Green Race Movement will not permit the use of disposables during the event. Participants are then required to bring their own water bottles.
Interested participants are invited to register until July 8, 2018 at Salomon Stores: SM Aura, SM Megamall, Glorietta 3, SM North Edsa Annex or online at www.salomonxtrailpilipinas.com.ph.
