10/Km and 25 Km Challenge

The thought of running through forest woods, rocky and muddy uphills and downhills, dirt roads for four or seven hours may not appeal to some, specially those who are still new to trail running but, for all its technicalities, this will be a well-organized and smoothly-run event, thanks to Race Director Dabobong Angeles and his new team “Be Trail Ready (BTR)” Events who has been at the forefront in staging short but challenging trail races near Metro Manila for the past 5 years.

Mountain passes, single track trails, water falls, raffle prizes, free food along the route and at the finish all help create a party atmosphere . And while some consider his longer distance offerings as hard-core and elite, the shorter one (10k) will be easier, manageable and will aim to attract more trail running newbies and other runners hailing from different levels.  The race’s start and finish near the vicinity of Baranggay Cuyambay, Tanay just adds to the “fiesta” factor. A 5am start should see you at the finish line in time for a well-earned medal and breakfast on the foot of this lively mountain municipality of Tanay.

Lagalag Sundown Ecotrail Run: April 8, 2017

LAGALAG SUNDOWN ECOTRAIL RUN 2017

Date:       April 8, 2017
Venue:    Timberland Heights, San Mateo, Rizal
Start Time:   3:00pm

Image may contain: cloud, sky, text, outdoor and nature

Lagalag’s inaugural Sundown Trail Run held last year didn’t create much stir as it may have registered below the regular trail runner’s radar but for the 300+ runners who were able to join the 3:00pm gun start, it was one of the best organized trail races with the cushy, well-maintained trails and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains that got our attention at Timberland Heights in San Mateo, Rizal.

Even though the weather was warm and humid, the race volunteers, course markings, bike marshals and the over-all race organization will be very hard to beat. The trails have nice single tracks, fire roads, lush forest, streams and non-stop views of the Sierra mountain range. This is one of those splendid races where you should really be taking in the scenic views but will probably be too busy trying not to wipe off the sweat in your face because of the warm weather.

For those of you who have not experience running at the Timberland trails, here’s your chance to do so.  The Lagalag Sundown Eco-Trail Run 2017 is happening on April 8. It will offer a 6km, 12km and a new 25km trail run (in lieu of the half marathon distance last year) which will start at 3:00pm.

We shall be updating you for more race details on this blog as soon as they come along.

Here are the details of the race:

Categories and Registration Fees:
6 km:    P750.00
12 km:  P900.00
25 km:  P1,200.00 (New Category)

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!

The 2016 North Face TNF100: A Short Review

Every trail has its own unique characteristics… it has its magnet of charms, its allure speaking at you to discover it. Many are mostly gentle, letting you savor its calm terrain and green scenery. But it can also be harsh, forcing you to climb its steepest hills and stumble when you step on outgrown roots, hidden on soft, mushy pine needles.

Its sternness however reminds us that for every route that we take, there will be gale winds to blow our faces, higher mountains to trek until we are out of breath, rivers to slip into its cold waters until we reach the other end and only then would we be rewarded and discover who we truly are.

Last week-end, i was one of those fortunate to run the 2016 North Face Trail Run Challenge at the paradise-like Camp John Hay in Baguio City.

A loop going to the Eco Trails with the 11k runners

The John Hay Country Club was the start of the 100k, 50k, 22k and 11k trail run distances as the route showcased the scenic mountain ranges and the pine tree-lined trails of the Cordilleras. The race course is not new to me, having ran it several times with blogger and trail runner, Franc Ramon during my visits in his hometown here in the City of Pines. As part of the Primer Group Media Team led by Ms. Aileen Frugal, Media Relations Officer of the Primer Group, we were able to observe the activities of this premier race and witness hundreds or maybe a thousand trail runners testing their mettle in this scenic but harsh route laid out by the organizers.

Media and bloggers converge at the Microtel before our respective races

The 50k runners on their way

Leaving Manila at about 10am, we arrived in Baguio City at 3:00pm, checked-in at our designated hotel, the dainty MICROTEL with just enough time to freshen ourselves before the race briefing and race packet claiming for the 50k and 100k runers at the nearby Newtown Hotel which started at 4:00pm.

When we arrived, the place was teeming with hundreds of trail runners, many familiar faces, old friends and others i met for the first time. The briefing was held in a convention hall of the hotel that was large and pretty expansive. The packet pick up was an easy process and the organizers took turns in discussing all details of the race and an open discussion of concerns ensued.

At the race briefing center in Newtown Hotel where hundreds of trail runners came to pick up their race packets

With known personalities in the trail running community (L-R) Iggy Lopez, Monolito Divina, Thumbie Remigio and Wilnar Iglesia.

The following morning, Saturday was the race of the 50k and 100k distance runners with the latter taking off at 3:00am while most of the Baguio City residents were probably still tucked in their blankets. The 50k runners were sent off an hour later. Later that morning, our media team had the chance to visit and survey parts of the route, visiting various Aid Stations while watching runners come and go during their breaks on these stations.

Last shot for 50k runners before they turn around on their way back

We saw first hand the difficulty of the terrain these runners had to endure, specially the 100km runners who had to battle intense heat, miles of undulating steep climbs, freezing cold when they reached the top, sudden downpours, cold sweeping winds, deep ravines, and thick fogs that rendered their head lamps useless. It was a difficult course navigating, exacerbated through the storm’s calamity. Later learned that many were not able to finish the race because of these trail hazards. Still a gallant effort for all these trail warriors!

100k Veterans, Jon Las Bruce and JC Igos on their lunch break at AS5 (Camp 1) before their assault back at the mountains. Both finished their race just 3 hours before cut-off time

While the 100k and 50k runners were out on their journey on the trails, the media and bloggers had a long Press briefing with Tim Sedo (L), TNF Regional Marketing Manager for HK and Asia and Jundel Llagas, Jr. (R), TNF Division Manager. Both had committed to support the TNF races in Asia, particularly in the Philippines where trail runing has grown leaps and bounds. They both assured that the TNF Trail Challenge Philippines will be in Baguio again next year, 2017.

The following day, Sunday was our turn to blaze the trails inside John Hay. I was originally set to do the 22km distance but didn’t want to bring havoc to my still recuperating left Achilles tendon so i decided to downgrade to the 11km distance.

With two of my media friends

Before the start with the 50k runners

We arrived at the venue at about 4:30am with cool weather and some morning fog enveloping the area. I was with about 10 other runners from the media and were poised just to have a good time running on one of the most beautiful paths of Baguio City.

With the SMART Communications Team and their Big Boss, Ian Yu aka Dagul Runner (L).

Champion of the 50k distance from South Korea who came in at 5:34:18

The 11k distance actually measured to 12.6k. It was a feeling of exhilaration combined with moments of exhaustion because of the arduous ascents on the middle stages of the route.

One of the best views running at the Yellow Trail

Highlights of this run are the rolling hills of the Eco Trail, the 500 meter zigzagging climb up to the Yellow Trails where i experienced some kind of oxygen debt just trying to put one foot over the other in reaching the top, the pine tree-laden Yellow Trails and the 45 degree, 300 meter slippery descent towards the embassy area which you will have to climb back once you reach the turn-around point. Best highlight many first-timers were raving were the great views all through-out, from the mountain ranges, deep ravines and the exceptionally wonderful trails with the pine trees surrounding it!

Congestion during the downhill parts of the trails

At the Yellow Trails

This was my 2nd time running the TNF Trail Challenge as last year’s race in Nuvali was one i didn’t savor too much as it was warm and humid compared to the cool mountains of Baguio. The TNF100Ph2016 lived up to its hype as it had what the organizers said it was…cool breeze, fresh air, awesome mountain views, umbrellas of pine trees, wooded forests, friendly race marshals and a lot more.

Some markings on the trails (c) Randy Belen

In no way do i get runner’s high or anything that will impress me anymore but having said that, it was still a great experience! The hills almost ate me alive, but I didn’t let me get the best of me. It was quite the hilly course but the people i ran with, the views and great camaraderie make it for an unforgettable experience.

Over-all, a amazing race and a majestic course.  Never have I experienced anything like it. And I highly recommend the short distance races (11k and 22k) for those new to trail running as a bucket list. Anyone can do it. Thank you TNF and Aileen Frugal of the Primer Group for hosting a great event!

Here are some pictures of our TNF experience. Enjoy!
