Itâ€™s all systems go for The North Face 100, the Asiaâ€™s 1st Trail Running Ultra Marathon series in Baguio-Benguet this weekend.
The two-day event (April 24 – 25) will put to the test the endurance of elite athletes, mountain climbers, outdoor buff and those who simply love an active lifestyle who will conquer the difficult paths, knife ridges and the treacherous mountain trails of the countryâ€™s summer capital.
The exciting event will surely be a crowd drawer as participants will vie for the 11K, 22K, 50K or 100K solo races. It will be the longest and most thrilling test of the athletes’ staying power as they pass through the unexplored path of Camp John Hay, the PMA grounds, Mt. Sto.Tomas and Tuba with a fitting finish in the iconic Burnham Park.
I think one of our friends Marce Fedhz (this I have to verify with Marce Pehpot) and her partner will join the tnf 100 on Sunday. We may not be there to root for the couple, but weâ€™ll (the Marces and their other friends) be praying for their triumph. Break a leg Fedhz and Mike! Cash prizes and medals await the lucky winners. I wish Fedhz and Mike will bring home the bacon. 🙂
The 22K starts at Lake Drive Burnham Park, 5.30am; April 25 2010. The 11K starts at Camp John Hay Old Gate (Fronting Nevada Square) 6am; April 25 2010.
This is a marked course. Total Elevation gain: TBA. Highest point: 2,062 masl.
