Committed to push the boundaries of outdoor experience, Salomon, the world’s leading trail running brand, gears up for the return of the highly-anticipated Salomon X-Trail Run this July 23, 2017 at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

For its 6th year, the Salomon X-Trail Run endeavors to deliver another exceptional trail running race that will empower its participants to push the boundaries of
their capabilities.

Aiming to resonate with the brand’s core purpose of inspiring people to play and progress in their chosen outdoor pursuits, this year’s Salomon X-Trail Run is sure to pack a lot of enjoyable yet exhilaratingobstacles ahead. Eyeing at least 1,000 participants, this year’s Salomon X-Trail Run will consist of two race categories, namely, Fun Trail category with 6km and 12km distances and the more technical “Mountain Run” with 24km and 32km distances.

Serving as the ultimate test for the most dedicated trail runners, the Mountain Run at this year’s race will once again simulate the challenging ascents of Skyrunning races – an arena dominated by Salomon. The race starts at 8:00am and 8:30am for its 32km and the 24km categories, respectively, the Mountain Run will witness the country’s top trail runners go head to head in this iconic race.

Positioned as the most challenging category of the race, and created especially for trail runners who want to take their skills to the next level, the 24km and 32km Mountain Run will feature technical ascents and varying terrain. From asphalt, sand, and rocks to river crossing and steep technical ascents, the route for this category is expected to yield an adrenaline-filled adventure for the racers.

The Mountain Run participants will receive a Race Kit which will include a race bib, a timing chip, a Salomon X-Trail technical jersey, a Salomon Race Cap, and Post-Race meal and products from sponsors. Only those who finish within the cut-off time of 5 hours for the 24km, and 7 hours for the 32km, will receive a Finisher’s medal for this category.

Given the demanding nature of these distances, participants of the 32km and 24KM Mountain Run must adhere to the prescribed mandatory gear which includes, 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.

Designed to accommodate road runners with zero to basic experience in trail running, the Fun Trail race has proven to be an extremely worthwhile experience. Through this category, Salomon aspires to encourage road runners to get out of their comfort zones and head straight into the world of trail running. Meant for runners who wish to experience a different kind of rush, the 6km Fun Trail category is a great
introduction to trail running.
