1st Busaingan Adventure Run – July 15, 2012


Are you tough and brave enough? Test your endurance. Come and join the first Busaingan Adventure Run and discover the pristine nature’s beauty of Sta. Magdalena. It is an event organized by the local government unit as part of Busaingan Festival 2012 to let the world see the different tourist destinations of the municipality.

The event will be a combination of extreme trail run and beach run. Part of the trail is the exceptionally challenging hike up to the summit of Mt. Maraot Banwa, the highest peak of the town. Here you will have breathtaking views of the coves, beaches, and coral plateaus of the town, the strong current of San Bernardino Strait, the vast blue Pacific Ocean, the islands of Samar and the majestic Bulusan Volcano. This trail run will bring a new adventure to the runners as well as promote environmental understanding through the watershed protection program, tree planting activities, and beach cleanup drive.

  1. Mixed Category po tentatively dahil kulang ang budget sa prizes. Pero kapag marami po ang sumaling female, mga 20. And then marami rin mag sponsor, magiging male and female category na po ang 21K.


  2. uy may accomodation n…sana kompletuhin nio n, include nio n transpo s mga tiga-maynila…ppunta t pbalik pra mas madali n s mga participants…ung fare n abot kaya…paniguradong maraming interesado d2 lalo n s mga commuters…

  3. gusto ko sana mag join sa 21k kaso wala akong kasama magbyahe kung may magcocommute sa inyo from manila pwede ba ko makisabay? =P

  4. I like the waterfall pic in the website! Is Mt. Maraot Banwa a dormant volcano? May virgin forest pa ba doon? Dapat i-endorse nyo yung mountain na yan sa mountaineers at nature-trippers. Pag may wildlife survey sa bundok na yun volunteer ako hehe.

    at P550 for 21k?! I like the price!

  5. @mike: sir, pano kaya ang magcommute papunta dito coming from manila, like what bus to take, where to get off, etc.? and approximately ilang oras ang byahe? :)

  6. @mike: talaga po! wooh! super interesado ako… i wanna join. itxt ko po kayo pagsure na ko… after ng takbo ko sa 2nd Valley Trail Challenge^_^

  7. Guys meron nang trail inspection pics sa fb page nila: https://www.facebook.com/stamagdalena

    Yup kunin nyo buses going to Matnog, Sorsogon (south-bound ng EDSA) sa Kamias, Cubao or Pasay bus stations. Sa Matnog, mag-trici papunta Sta Magdalena kung walang jeep. Di ko lang alam kung may jeep galing Legaspi or Sorsogon city papunta Sta. Magdalena sana magpost dito yung nakakaalam.

  8. may bus na byahe diretso sta magdalena paggaling ka sa cubao..pro kung dimo mahanap sakay kana lang bus byahe sorsogon..from there mag jeep ka na lang papuntang sta magdalena marami dun..almost 1hr din ang byahe from sorsogon city to sta magdalena….taga dyan ako kaso walang time para makatakbo

  9. Would like to know if the Blibs & Singlets are ready for distribution. Am running solo too 21k event . Good Luck Guys. After this event hope to see in Manila on July 29th for the Milo Marathon national Eliminations.

  10. @Mike, @t00longuess_runner, what bus po? may byahe pa ba ng around 9pm? solo backpacker here… sana may guide sa transpo from the orginizers. thanks!

  11. hi Toots, suggestion lang po. From Cubao Bus terminal U can take an El Avil Bus to Matnog. Aircon Bus(Irosin) Leaves at 7:00 Pm, Fare P870, Ordinary Bus leaves at 6:00pm & 7:30 pm fare P650. Inform the driver to drop you off at the Sta. Magdelena crossing, then take a tricycle to the town proper. There is a Mega Bus that departs at 9Pm but depends on the volume of passengers , so its safer to take the El Avil bus. its a 14hour trip. Good Luck po

  12. Wow only 550 for 21k with medal!! San ka pa? You can’t find marathon registration deals like this in Manila anymore :( thank you po Sta, Magdalena.

  13. first time ko pupunta sa Sorsogon. kitakits po! maganda daw ang tanawin dun sa Sta.Magdalena kaya naman dadalhin ko ang camera ko. excited na para sa 21K Adventure Run^_^

  14. @Arnel, can i find all of them in cubao? where exactly bro? really need a 9 and beyond trip, may work pa kasi =(

  15. mukhang hindi naman technical ang trail. any info on the elevation? race to summit daw kasi… katakot naman kung ganun ~~’ anyway, problema ko pa din ang transpo, need a bus na 8pm or beyond ang trip. dderecho lang kasi ako from work, 6pm pa out ko.

  16. To TooTs: Sori now lang naka reply sir, You can find the Bus terminal at the back of Shopwise Araneta, or beside Ali Mall & SM Cubao. You can still try to cath up with the 9pm bus trip of Mega Bus, its a pink bus. Since its weekend you might be lucky to chance upon extra trips. Good Luck.

  17. To everyone taking the bus from Manila and want to go straight to the run: The bus ride from Manila to Sta. Magdalena takes about 15 hours so if you do the math (and 5 am assembly time) then your bus should have left Manila no later than 2 pm saturday at the latest pero I recommend leaving no later than 12 noon to allow some time for delays, passengers going in/out, traffic, road works (alam ko meron sa Atimonan, Quezon at maybe more sa Camsur), longer than usual stays at rest stops, if you’re a last-minute on-site registrant at yung punta pa sa venue mismo.

    Its better to be early than late.

  18. TO everyone: please take the friday bus trip from Cubao,so that you can arrive before lunch at Sta. Magdalena & still have time to get some rest I understand there are meals for participants from other places. Thanks, See You Guys. God Bless, Have a safe Journey.

  19. im taking the pahiltranco bus in pasay, etd 8:30pm, destination is sorsogon, 900 ang fare… medyo hesitant ako sa fare kasi merong 900 from silver star bus pero drop off is matnog which is much nearer to sa sta magdalena. that bus will leave at 5pm. di ko na kaya habulin kasi 6pm pa out ko sa work. may maisa-suggest ba kayo na mas mura at night trip?

  20. toots, taga Laguna ako, kaya Turbina ang sakay ko. 5pm last trip. JVH Bus. ordinary lang ako 400 hanggang Sorsogon City, dun ako sakay papunta sta.magdalena. ingat ka sa byahe^_^
