An Inviting Trail: The North Face 100

Last December, I had a short hike on the Yellow Trail at Scout Barrio, Baguio City.  I had the company of a good old friend then.  We used to climb mountains back when we were still in College and the first memorable climb that we had was at Mt. Kabuyao more commonly known as Mt. Sto. Tomas. It is the mountain where you can see from almost anywhere in Baguio the two big radars left during the American occupation. (Here's a trivia: These two radar keeps Baguio's climate cool, indeed it is the centralized aircon in Baguio, lol, just kidding!).

One of our favorite trail track at Country Club

Jaymark and I enjoyed the short trail that we have traversed, and in some way, I am looking forward at doing such activity again in my hometown.  Well, opportunity is great that The North Face is challenging everyone to join their trail running, connecting the unexplored trails of Camp John Hay, PMA grounds, Mt. Sto. Tomas, Tuba, and Burnham Park this coming April 24-25, 2010. As their advertisement goes:
Define your personal limits 6,000++ ft above sea level! Join The North Face 100 in Baguio-Benguet. Visit:

I know I had been successful in achieving something in the running events that I have joined: I have overcomed my Asthma; Been defeating my own PRs; Won in the raffle prizes; and just lately, I was able to garner a Championship place at a race category. However, TNF100 is another thing. You will not be running on the usual road; but you will be welcoming your feet in the gnarly paths, knife ridges, and treacherous mountain trails. Definitely, a very challenging trail run for me and for the runners of all sort.

I had a sneak of what is to happen in their TVC.  The video is really inviting. Shall I join 11K (a comfort zone for me), or shall I level up to 22K?  More so, am I going to lose my sanity and join 50K or 100K?  This is Asia’s 1st Trail Running Ultra Marathon series to Baguio-Benguet.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and it guarantees to be the longest, most thrilling test  of our endurance. And it is even more wonderful for it will be held in the city where I grew up. Shall I see you there?
