frontRUNNER Magazine – The Valley Trail Challenge

I am a newbie in the world of ultra-marathons… after finishing 4 ultra distance races and dnf’d on the 1st 100 miler in the country. I think it’s about time to rest my knees from the pounding of the cement… And that is why I’m going to try the trail…

The Valley Trail Challenge @ Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna

Nagsawa na ba kayo sa paulit-ulit na kalsadang tinatakbuhan ninyo dito sa Metro Manila? Batung-bato na ba kayo sa tigas ng sementong kalsada?

Di ba’t panahon na para subukan ninyo ang ibang klaseng kalsada, ruta at mga bagong tanawin?

You are cordially invited by frontRUNNER Magazine, Ang Pambansang Babasahin ng Mananakbong Pilipino, to the The Valley Trail Challenge that will be held on June 18, 2011 at Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna.

For those who have done the marathon, don’t you think it’s time to test your feet for an ultra marathon? And for those who simply love the outdoors, a 25-kilometer category awaits you.

The route is generally runner-friendly, having a rolling but mostly flat terrain(single and double track dirt roads), and only around 5% will consist of concrete roads. This route offers reprieve from constant pounding on hard surfaces. One loop will consist of 25 kilometers with the start and finish lines situated at the vicinity of the Evolving Center. The course will bring runners to the peripheries of the NUVALI complex which will offer participants majestic views that only nature and NUVALI can offer.

And in the true tradition of trail and ultra running, this race will be a no frills, all thrills race where runners, despite the presence of three aid stations (at Kilometers 9, 20 and 25 – first aid, water and electrolyte drinks), are strongly advised to be self-contained and sufficient, meaning, runners are required to carry their own hydration kits and nutrition supplies. Additionally, it is also recommended that they bring their own first aid kit (cotton balls, antiseptic solution, band aid strips and anti-biotic ointment).

A final briefing and race packet distribution shall be held on June 14, 2011, 6pm at ROX, Bonifacio High Street.

Experience the peace and serenity of your run without the distractions of pre and post-race fanfare.

We hope to see you share the trails with us.

Bring your cameras too!
