2nd Valley Trail Challenge
2nd Valley Trail Challenge
NUVALI, Sta Rosa, Laguna
Nagsawa na ba kayo sa paulit-ulit na kalsadang tinatakbuhan ninyo dito sa Metro Manila at kung saan-saan pa? 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?
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.
And for all those who had their trail or ultramarathon baptism of fire in the same event last year, you are all once again cordially invited by frontRUNNER Magazine, Ang Pambansang Babasahin ng Mananakbong Pilipino, to the 2nd Valley Trail Challenge that will be held on July 1, 2012 at Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna.
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 The Fields Clubhouse. 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 event where runners, despite the presence of aid stations, are strongly advised to be self-contained and sufficient, meaning , runners are required to carry their own headlamps/flashlights, 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).
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! RAIN or SHINE.
