Salomon X-Trail Run 2016: A Sneak Peek

 

The Salomon X-Trail Run is back and for this year, the race venue will be at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales which again will offer challenging, lung-busting but scenic trails. This premier trail run will be held on April 9, 2015 and will offer a 6k, 12k Road To Trail Runs and the more challenging 24k and 32k mountain runs!

Both the 24 and 32k distances will be for the veteran trail runners and offers a very tough course and as with all previous Salomon Trail races will pass through arduous mountain peaks, breathtaking views, the El Kabayo Falls, several stream crossings and rolling hills.

The 6k and 12k events are designed to be easier, flatter, and faster than the longer distances. The courses are exhilarating & typically along a combination of roads, dirt trails and river crossings. Highlights of this course is the Pamulaklakin Trails.
