Unexplored beach coves, new and scenic mountain trails, and most of all the patented highly challenging running course that Salomon X-Trail Run has been known for. Nope this is not for the spoiled city slicker runners. It’s the place to bring yourself to the next level of running sport and enjoy the dynamics of running on trail. The scenery is just icing on the cake. In this afternoon’s media briefing, the organizers unveiled the new categories and trails for this year’s Salomon X-Trail Run to be held at Hamilo Coast, Pico de Loro this April 12, 2014.
This year’s race routes are divided into 2 main categories – the Mountain Run and the Road to Trail Run. The Mountain Run has a 32k and 24k trails which are designed to challenge the experienced and veteran trail runners. Cut-off time for each is 7 hours and 5 hours respectively. The organisers are strict in enforcing mandatory gear like headlamps, whistle, hydration pack/gear.
The Road to Trail run has 12k and 6k trails to entice novice and experienced road runners to get a feel on running the trail. But this won’t be a walk in the park for sure. Cut off time is 3 hours and 1.5 hours respectively. Hydration gear is mandatory.
The Salomon X-Trail Run 2014 is a Green Run. Organizers require participants to have their own hydration packs/gear as littering in the area is not allowed. There are strategic Hydration Stations in the road trails just before critical trail ascends. There are no hydration stations up on the higher trails!
Registration is now until Sunday, April 6, 2014. For more details visit www.salomonxtrailpilipinas.com
