It’s back, and it promises to be bigger and better this April 9, 2016! Salomon Pilipinas, the brand notable for its pioneering technology and innovation in the sports of trail running and adventure hiking, brings to us outdoors enthusiasts the 2016 edition of its famed Salomon Xtrail, to be hosted this year at SBMA Subic, Zambales.
Salomon XTrail Pilipinas 2016 – Get Ready to Run the Path of Most Resistance
Challenging participants to “run the path of most resistance”, Salomon Pilipinas will be bringing two major events: a grueling mountain run and a road-to-trail run.
32km Mountain Run
The mountain run is divided into two categories. The 32km version is guaranteed to give even experienced trail runners and mountaineers a run for their money (pun absolutely intended), as they compete over some of the most challenging terrain Zambales has to offer. The route is much more than lush vegetation and exposed trails; there’s a sense of time too as runners and racers venture into historical locales and wartime landmarks. With over a full kilometer of elevation gain, this event is one for the strongest runners out there. The registration fee is PHP1600.00.
24km Mountain Run
The shorter version, at 24km, is highly challenging in its own right though recommended for experienced trail runners and for adventure hikers seeking a more physically-demanding trial. This version reaches a peak elevation of 372m, and gains about half a mile throughout the entirety of the racecourse. Both the 24km and 32km mountain runs will challenge runners in a different way, as there is guaranteed to be wet sections during river crossing portions. The registration fee for the 24km run is PHP1400.00.
