Mount Sembrano Mountain Run 2018

Overheard: “Ang hirap pala nito, kaya pala yung deadline ng registration ng DBB Mountain Rockstar kahapon para wala ng atrasan.”
Mount Sembrano is definitely a trap with a really painful technical climb but if you put that aside, you get to play around the scenic ridges of Mount Sembrano for most of the run. Continue reading »

After the successful Sierra Trail Adventure Race 2016, it took time before I was mentally ready for its sequel.
