The Arayat Mountain Race will happen on 06 April 2014, Sunday 6AM, at Magalang, Pampanga, Philippines.

Mount Arayat is an extinct stratovolcano on Luzon Island, Philippines, rising to a height of 1,026 metres (3,366 ft). There is no recorded eruption of the volcano, and its last activity probably dates to the Holocene era.The mountain is considered a mystical one, the legendary home of Aung/Aring Sinukuan/Sinkuan/Suku or the Fairy known as diwata Mariang Sinukuan depending on which version of the story the readers or listeners prefer, but in ancient Kapampangan folklore as well as the research known to have been gathered by Kapampangan students of Henry Otley Beyer, it was and is the abode of Apung/Aring Sinukuan, rival of Namalyari of Mount Pinatubo, who is in varying versions, the son of Cargon-Cargon who was mortally wounded in a fight with a giant from the Zambales Mountain Range which is said to be the home of Apu Namalyari.

This is the first race on Arayat National Park following the popularity now of mountain running across the globe. This event is supported by the local government of Magalang.

  1. To the organizers:
    Many runners are eager to join this event but have problems with transpo..Please provide shuttle service, additional fee nalang..Pretty please, thanks! :)

    • Hi runners!

      As requested, we will be providing 1 jeepney to take runners from Dau bus terminal to the Start line at Abe’s Farm. It will leave not later than 4:30AM of 06 April 2014 for the 6AM start. 16 seats for P/50 pesos/per head. One-way only and no return trip to Dau due to varying finish time of runners.

      Cheers,
      AMRace

  2. Very safe now given the relative peace and order in the area for a long time. There is a police HQ up in the peak of Arayat guarding a communication tower for 24/7. Some of them will even join the race. We have seen or met a lot of foreigners with their kids or families hiking as well. So that history is best left aptly in the “past” now.

    Cheers!
