Salomon xTrail 32k Mountain Run2014

This is my 3rd year in a row for Salomon x trail event. The event held again in Hamilo Coast Nasugbu, Batangas and this year they added new category – 32k.

Finisher’s medal and my Race Bib


This is me at the finish line. “medal bite”



I’m very thankful to God I was able to finish within the allotted cut off time of 7hours(6hrs and 47mins) though I suffered left midfoot pain ( plantar fasciitis), I was bearing the pain from midway until the finish line. Pain I felt during Mt. Arayat Mountain Race a week prior to this event. For the results you may go here: 


To those who didn’t make it, cheer up! there’s still next year! I know there’s a lot of DNF runners due to the cut off time and difficulty of the route.

Here are my thoughts which I already posted in the event facebook page.

-(32k)Toughest route for me to date! Yes I need to train hard consistently esp. in elevation!!
-Cut off time midpoint was posted a day before the event
-Limited Gatorade stations(2-3) given the difficulty of the route plus the HEAT, water is not enough to be honest especially in the last 5Km
-No Bananas in Aid Stations, half bananas only after the race..wth?!
-Limited Kilometer marks unlike last year
-Swag Medal!

Will I join again next year? hmm maybe? Let’s see then.
