the-last-stand-of-yamashita-2016-poster

In the 1940’s, the Japanese soldiers attacked the Philippines. The Shobo Group which was assigned in Northern Luzon was personally under the command of Imperial Japanese Army General Tomoyuki Yamashita who was also known as as the “Tiger of Malaya”.

Yamashita tried to rebuild his Army and was forced to retreat from Manila to the mountains. Although Yamashita used delaying tactics to maintain his army the Filipino and American soldiers including the guerrillas was already in the move to put down the Japanese forces. After several months and attempts of fighting his soldiers reduced in numbers. Mt Napulawan in Hungduan Ifugao became the Last Stand of Yamashita and finally surrendered in Kiangan on September 2, 1945.

Through the stories passed on by old folks, Team Malaya, together with the municipaltity of Hungduan Ifugao, will try to relive the tracks and the trails used by the Japanese army through “THE LAST STAND OF YAMASHITA”.

  1. . The route is definitely so scenic. Mt Napulawan mossy forest and peak is so amazing, the view from Yamashita trail is another story you’ll find yourself running along rice terraces just before the finish line!

  2. No marshalls on critical forks, no aid station on first half of the longer race (do not believe the map), markers are hidden somewhere you just have to find it, do not bother arriving on time for the pre race orientation because it Will be always late, and do not bother listening to the pre orientation meeting because it will not help you at all as you will still end up a lot more confused after. And do not cry like a baby when you get lost

  3. This is based on past experiences with Team Malaya races. No marshalls on critical forks, no aid station on first half of the longer race (do not believe the map), markers are hidden somewhere you just have to find it, do not bother arriving on time for the pre orientation because it Will be always late, and do not bother listening to the pre orientation meeting because it will not help you at all as you will still end up a lot more confused after. And do not cry like a baby when you get lost.. So good luck

  4. This is what happened in 42K Sagada Marathon. All of a sudden the race was cut to 32k without notice and we found ourselves at the finish line at 32k.

  5. gusto ko sana subukan kaso hindi pala kayo maayos mag-organize sabi ng mga dating sumali sa event niyo… kaya ‘wag na lang.
