Incoming: Pinoy Trails Sierra Trail Adventure Race 2016

Posted by on 26. August 2016

 

Sierra is one of my favorite trail playground.  It has a clean and fresh air and surroundings. There’s that scenic early morning sea of clouds and there’s the variety of trail surface and terrain you could play with. That’s a playground you can enjoy too with Pinoy Trails on December 10, 2016 for Sierra Trail Adventure Race 2016. #PinoyTrails #STAR2016

Sierra Trail Adventure Race 2016

I’ve done the Sierra loop several times already and I always appreciate the place.  The highway prides itself with the high vantage point to see the early morning sea of clouds or at times, it looks like a river since you can see it practically move from one mountain to another.  There’s the thrilling downhill ride on different trail surfaces that will bring out the kid in you.  There’s also the challenging climb that would challenge your quads and lung capacity.

Pinoy Trails and Rundezvous presents Sierra Trail Adventure Race 2016 happening at Tanay, Rizal on December 10, 2016. This is a race meant for those who like to start their trail adventures up until the seasoned veterans who are looking for the next challenging climb to conquer.  There’s a 8K distance for newbies or those who want to run it short and sweet. There’s the 12K distance for 12K runners and there’s the 18K distance (solo and buddy), who would be in for a complete trail experience with its descents and ascents as well as being in refreshing forest trails, river and stream crossing and a long climb back to the main road.

#STAR2016 will make you fall in love with the trails.  Register begins on August 30, 2016 and see you there.

    Woah, looking at the path that you are going to take seems really to be a challenge enough. I hope that you can conquer it at the day of the run.

  2. Badet Siazon

    It’s a great place to run! Scenic view and fresh air awaits runners, I won’t mind running in this race too. Goodluck Franc!

  3. The Graceful Mist

    It`s only at Tanay, Rizal but the scenic views seem great. It would be wonderful to join this trail adventure with close friends.

    It really looks challenging there are steep paths and there’s water as well. I think it’s perfect for people who would like to “up” their game when it comes to trails. The view is worth it though! That’s for sure.

    The photo of the clouds looks so awesome. 🙂 It sounds like a really great trail. I hope to see a follow up blog with photos of the event

  7. Teresa Martinez

    It’s nice to know that this run can accommodate both newbies and seasoned runners. Must be wonderful running as one gets to view the Sierra Madre Mountain Range.

    Do you have buses for hire for this event. It will be a relief for most of us I think if we can just pay additional amount for the transportation in going to and fro the venue.
