ICU Challenge

Catanduanes is one of the most beautiful island in the country.  It’s rich with natural wonders like beaches, waterfalls and even overlooking ridges across the island.  When it comes to terrains and elevations, it’s a challenge as the road goes rolling with long ascents and descents.    ICU Challenge happens on June 24, 2017 at Virac, Catanduanes. This special ICU edition is designed to test the physical and emotional endurance over running for 6 hours and 12 hours. It is open to all first-timers, enthusiasts and hardcore runners. Aside from exploring the town of Virac by foot, ICU Challenge will give you a chance to visit the most popular places, views and taste the sumptuous dishes on the island of Catanduanes.

It’s simple just run as much 6 kilometer loops as you can with the 6 hours required to have a minimum of 6 loops (36 kilometers) and the 12 hours required to have a minimum of 9 loops (54 kilometers).  It’s an excellent way to build up on mileage for your next marathon or ultramarathon race. It could also be your tune up race over the much longer Isla Catanduanes Ultramarathon happening later in the year. So gear up, run and explore the island of Catanduanes.
