The Salomon Xtrail Pilipinas 2015

I thought this year’s race isn’t as difficult as the one in Hamilo Coast but it is definitely a lot more organized than before. This was a Green Race, no disposable cups were provided and it’s a must that each runner have their own hydration which everyone seemed to comply with. Hydrations Stations were spot-on, at least on our 12km route. I never ran out of drinks from my bottle and have the luxury to refill at every stop. The post-run meal was miles better than last year. The program started early though which was good and the awarding of the podium finishers for each category went smoothly. These people are inhuman. Imagine the top finisher for the 32km finished in sub-3 hrs. Just crazy and inspiring at the same time. Big congratulations to all of them. I do hope next year they also give a medal to the lower categories to even a small one so we could also have a small token of accomplishment from finishing the trail.
