Right: 2014 TNF 22K and Left 2013: TNF 22K

I’ve joined the past 2 editions of TNF 100 in Baguio City with the 22K distance.  It was a totally different experience for each race.  The 2013 edition had a lot of stretches of roads while the 2014 edition was mostly trails.  Both were really challenging when it comes to elevation gain with Baguio’s mountain terrain.  It’s the first ultra marathon trail series and it’s been a staple for endurance athletes because of the challenge.  This year, comes a faster but equally challenging Nuvali – Tagaytay – Batangas course with a different look and different sets of challenges for endurance athletes.  It’s time to experience the thrill of the trail and here’s some of the reason why you should join TNF 100.

 

TNF is Asia’s first trail running series. It would be a challenge to participants.  It’s not an easy one but with pain comes the pride of joining and finishing an event.  On its 7th year, The North Face 100, Asia’s 1st Trail Running Ultra Marathon Series and the Philippines’ mother of all trail runs continue to break boundaries and challenge everyone to Never Stop Exploring.

There are scenic views and surprises along the route.  It’s a new scenery for participants as after 3 years of high altitude running and massive elevation gains, 215 ushers in a “fast course” where speed and multi –terrain adaptability play much bigger roles. This provides a welcome opportunity for ultra road runners to try and experience the trails in a more accessible, controlled yet still challenging environment.

It’s all about experiencing, surviving and getting to tell people about your awesome experience and accomplishment.  The greatest stories ever told are not those devoid of hardships and challenges.  It’s how you surpass them and how it defines you as a person that makes it exciting.  The outdoor pioneers have shown that with fundamental skills, proper training, and reliable equipment extreme trails can be conquered, now we challenge the greater majority to level up their game, be counted among the ranks of trail runners and be one of The North Face in Breaking All Boundaries.

It’s a character-defining run.  So whether you are an aspiring trail running beginner or a seasoned racer looking for new challenges, unparalleled experience is offered in each competition of this season’s largest trail running series.  You’ll be up against a field of local and international participants so just imagine the prestige and honor of being part of your country’s pool of athletes.

It’s among the prestigious trail running events so there’ll be real time tracking with your mobile phone. Since this would be a new location, be part of the pioneers who would be conquering this tough terrain and Break All Boundaries, and Never Stop Exploring!

    This is one of the races that I don’t want to attend, it will take the best out of me most especially on running on hills and bumpy roads. 🙁

    It’s a 100k run??? That’s too much for me! Pang-halimaw lang ang peg!

  4. Irish

    From Nuvali to Batangas? OMG! Good luck on this race, Franc!

  5. Summer

    Wow that a very long trail. I can’t even sure if I can do 2kms eh 😀 Isn’t that very abusive for the body? It would be worth it to bring cameras with the scenic views along the way.
