  1. Hi! For those who are interested to climb and dont have a partner(team) , please text me at 09476990063, so we can register together a P1000 a piece. I can give some details about the trail, because I have climb makiling using this trail-sto tomas batangas to uplb. This one is hardcore..

  2. Yes..challenging talaga..mahirap yung trail dito..may rope segments , lipa lipa plant, limatik, third entity ,,etc..kaya tara na lets run..:)

  3. Better if you go to sto. Tomas via bus (bus terminal at buendia corner taft) … This is indeed one tough climb.. And to top it all.. A trail run.. Wear climbing gaiters (protection against the local poison ivy or dahon ng lipa).. Its rainy so beware of the dreaded limatik or the philippine leech.. Climb safely.. Run happy! :)

  4. jm,,partner na lang tayo..hehehe.. tapos climb muna tayo using this trail a week before para malaman mo yung tatakbuhan mo..:) ..at maka pag prepare din ng maayos..txt me at 09476990063..:)madali lang pagpunta dito,,sakay ka ng bus papunta batangas..pababa ka sa sto tomas market..tapos tricycle to jump off..:)

  5. mj? jm? hehehehe.. practice ba muna??? may run ako this weekend sa unilab next week meron din..:( sige il save your number.. kelangan b tlga natin mgpractice?? tulungan mo na lng ako… kita tayo sa mismo date ng registration.. text tayo kung kelan tayo mag reg pupunta ako…

  6. ok sana yung trail run kaso ang problema yung mga sasakyan. kung mag park ka naman anywhere you still have to commute to get your car. mejo magulo!

  7. hirap nga pag may sasakyan, kasi sa batangas ka mag papark,tapos ng run,sa los banos ka lalabas, so babalik ka pa ng batangas kung kukunin mo ang sasakyan mo..:) wala pa bang design ng singlet ? may climb kami this sunday using this route,,baka may gusto sumabay,,para ma experience nyo ang maktrav…

  8. Participants may take public buses from EDSA Cubao or Taft-Buendia bound for Lucena. Alight at the Sto. Tomas public market or Jollibee, walk 200 meters to the municipal hall start line (call time is 4am). A service vehicle can carry your extra load to the finish line at UPLB.

  9. limatik… jan ako takot.. okay lang yung dahon na lipa lipa na makati wag lang limatik.. madalas kami nag cle-cleean up sa makiling pero kapag may limatik wala na ako magawa..

  10. kagagaling ko lang ng makiling traverse,,maulan, maputik at ma-limatik..
    dami madudulas na trail..pero the best ang maktrav..di ko sure kung pano kayo tatakbo sa mga assault dun,,better protect your whole face,daming masukal na trail at para din mapasukan ng limatik sa mata,bibig at tenga..Good luck.Have a safe trail run.

  11. actually gusto kong sumali kaso hanggang 10k pa lang ang natatakbo ko…pero syempre pipilitin ko…kung sinong naghahanap ng teammate my cel is 09296221948.

  12. jm, tnx 4 d advice. practice lang kami uphill d2 with partner. alam ko hardcore yang maktrav. kaya di to basta basta. 50 slots lang ang avialable 2 per team.

  13. any chance of updating this event? participants need some details on what to expect and to prepare for this event.. Thank you.. any update will be so much appreciated..
