Valley Trail Challenge 2016

Valley Trail Challenge had a different flavor this year. The usual pancake route turned into a mud-fest with a lot of rains in between. Each step was a struggle and it was a mental and physical challenge going over the long slippery muddy route. In other words, we had FUN! Continue reading »

Soleus Cross Country Challenge

Add a little bit of rain and the trail becomes a whole new playground. Soleus Cross Country Challenge was a challenge indeed. It was a challenge on how you’d navigate the muddy and slippery trail. It was a challenge on your courage as you go daredevil mode on the long and steep descent. It was a challenge on your sanity as you endure a very long ascent back to the finish line. It’s tough but we just get tougher with all these challenges!!! Continue reading »

Run GNC 2016

Run GNC 2016 was another feel good run. It had thousands of participants but it had enough leg room to for you to run. It was a fast and flat course with a little bit of flyover. It’s a welcome variety for a 10K MOA and Roxas Boulevard route to utilize the flyover at Buendia for that hilly feel. Continue reading »

World Vision Run 2016

World Vision is an advocacy I am supporting. I am a World Vision sponsor for several years now and I make it a point to join their run roo. This year, it was another feel-good run for a really good cause. Having the race venue at Blue Bay Walk gave us a faster access to Roxas Boulevard and its flyovers giving the race a hillier feel. It was awesome seeing thousand of runners all united for the cause of World Vision. #WorldVisionRun2016 Continue reading »

Mount Sembrano Mountain Run

Mount Sembrano Mountain Run just redefined an epic mountain run in my books. It had a long uphill climb that came with a technical terrain and a really steep incline. It also came with a very scenic route with the long ridge atop Mount Sembrano giving a high vantage point of the Pililia area. Continue reading »

Lagalag Sundown Trail Run

It was a last minute decision but ended up driving myself to Timberland, registering onsite and enjoying the 12 kilometers distance for Lagalag Sundown Trail Run. The trail was a roller coaster adventure with the higher part of the trail having an overlooking view of the city and the lower part showing the rich Forrest reserve of Timberland.
