While my fingers were busy exploring the vastness of cyberspace last night, I stumbled upon one great adventure of epic proportion by Christoph Rehage: he walked 4,646K through China!

Road races in the Philippines are already at par with the world’s best, but ultramarathon trail races are still way behind, especially when it comes to Aid Stations, and especially if you compare it with this one at around km 21 of The North Face® Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc® – Saint Gervais, Les Contanimes and Notre Dame:
This race is definitely one for my bucket list!
I’ve ran onto the routes of Nuvali before, both on and off-road, and honestly I find it a bit boring especially when compared to natural trails of the mountains—until Valley Trail came along! It was a race with a lot of firsts, including my first DNF!
Bataan Death March Ultramarathon is currently the longest road ultramarathon in the Philippines with 160 kilometers and “classic” 102 kilometers route. The 102K event would always be special for me as it was my first road ultramarathon and the first one beyond 100K. Unfortunately I’m not able to run either of the two events, but when the opportunity came to spectate the event (102K) first hand, I grabbed the chance and took the opportunity to relive my experiences. Here’s part of my chronicles of the event, in photos:

2010 was the year running took a backseat from my list of activities, but in between my great hiatus there were some interesting events that transpired. Here’s a look back at how 2010 was for me:
The highlight for the first month of 2010 was my return to running with a 50K test run of the Bataan Death March (BDM) Ultramarathon (first 50K of the actual route).
