Brace yourself for one of the toughest and most challenging races of the nation!
The first and only obstacle racing series within Philippine territories, TN-Guerilla Race Inc. is proud to announce the resumption of the GUERILLA RACE SERIES for 2015 with its entry level challenge, the URBAN GUERILLA RACE®. After the success of its series in 2014, the founders headed by Lt. Col. Dennis Bumanglag are driven to intensify the obstacles and redefine the overall challenges of the race.
URBAN GUERILLA RACE® is set on April 12, 2015 at the Ninoy Aquino Parks & Wildlife in Quezon City. The benefit race will support the H.E.R.O. Foundation by donating a part of the registration fees to assist the education of the orphans of our soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the service to the country.
“The H.E.R.O. Foundation is truly close to our hearts especially since I, myself had also been in the service,” says Lt. Col. Bumanglag. “The government can only do so much and we, as citizens, should also make an effort to help the families of these brave soldiers who defended our country without second thoughts.”
Since the GUERILLA RACE SERIES is patterned according to actual military trainings, racers have the chance to experience what these soldiers go through in preparation to defend the country. But the experience alone is just a bonus, racers can actually be their own HERO by joining the race and help these fallen heroes’ families.
The GUERILLA RACE SERIES is held annually with three major races per year. Past races were held at Nuvali Estates, Sta. Rosa Laguna (Guerilla Sprint), Timberland Heights, San Mateo Rizal (Guerilla Warrior) and Filinvest City, Alabang (Guerilla Panther Challenge and Guerilla Kids Race). It was last October 2014 when the exhilarating Kids Edition was introduced. The Guerilla Kids Race was participated by children ages 6 to 12 years old in an effort to make the race a family-friendly affair.
Just like last year’s series, racers can expect obstacles like Javelin Throw, Sandbag Carry, Log Balance, Barbed Wire Crawl, Fire Jump, Cargo Nets and Vertical Rope Climb, but with a whole other set of obstacles. The race as always will not provide maps to racers, so racers can only rely on their determination and courage with the mantra to “Finish the race…or die trying.”
Racers can choose from the following: Guerilla Sprint (5K with 12 Obstacles) at P950; Guerilla Warrior (10K with 18 Obstacles) P1,150; and Guerilla Kids (1K with 6 Obstacles) at P750. Registration can be done via GUERILLA RACE® website, Merrell branches (SM North EDSA-Annex, Trinoma, Market! Market!, Festival Mall) and HIT Arena (BF Paranaque).
