Never underestimate the distance. That’s one of the few lessons I learned running the 11k trail run at the recently held The North Face 100 PH in Benguet. After running the 12k trail at the Salomon Xtrail in Subic a couple of weeks before, I thought it would be easier for me to get a better time here. My goal for this 11k run was to finish strong, at least on the upper half on the overall ranking. I never thought that this shorter would challenge me that much though.
The North Face 100 PH 2016
The North Face 100 PH trail run was held on the labor day weekend of April 30 and May 1, 2016. The endurance ultra-runners for 50km and 100km runners started on a rainy day April 30, Saturday while the shorter distance runners of 22km and 11km started on May 1 Sunday. There are participants from all over the globe in this run with 20 nationalities represented among the 1366 runners, from Korea, Norway and Indonesia to mention a few. And impressively on the first day, the first 50km runner crossed the line with a record breaking time of 5:34:18 hours by Korean,Jisub KIM.
